- Milky Way's Structure Mapped in Unprecedented Detail
Astronomers are one step closer to solving a longstanding mystery — just what our Milky Way galaxy looks like. "We are fairly confident that the Milky Way is a spiral galaxy, but we don't know much in detail. At the most basic level, we'd like to be able to make a map that would show in detail what it looks like," said Mark Reid of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who led the new study.

An earlier report from Bloomberg last year also stated that Apple’s new iPhones would feature curved
