A revelation from Science:
Study Describes Bar at Center of Milky Way - Yahoo! News:
"After creating the most detailed analysis yet of what the Milky Way looks like, astronomers say a long bar of stars cuts on an angle through the center of the galaxy that includes the sun and planet Earth."
That's interesting. But if the experts had said that the bar was made out of creamy nougat instead of stars, that really would have been a breakthrough - because then we may have finally figured out what nougat actually is.
Or maybe nougat is in fact made of stars.
