|Milky Way Galaxy.
The stellar halo of the Milky Way Galaxy has at least two components with apparently two different populations with distinct kinematic properties (vrot: rotation; \sigma: rms dispersion). It possibly gives a hint about the dual formation scenario of the Galaxy i.e. in situ and accretion.

|The Alcubierre warp drive
allows a spaceship to travel at large global velocity by deforming the
spacetime in a bubble around the spaceship.
The figure shows the spacetime diagram for massive particles with initial negative velocity . The magenta and the black lines represent the bubble walls and ship respectively. All the particles pass through the bubble.

Distribution of dwarf galaxies around Andromeda (M31).
The Pan-Andromeda Archaeological Survey
(PAndAS) led to discovery of new satellite galaxies orbiting
around the Andromeda galaxy. In 2010, during the second year of
data from PAndAS, five new dwarf galaxies (Andromeda
XXIII-XXVII) have been found in the outer halo of M31.
