The dusty center of the Milky Way as it appears today.

How did the Milky Way form?

The exact origins of the Milky Way are shrouded in mystery. But astronomers believe that our home galaxy started out more than 13 billion years ago, and that it was much smaller than its present-day size. How did it grow so much to reach its current size? For that, we can probably thank eons of galactic cannibalism.
