The planets in our solar system orbit around the sun. One orbit of the Earth takes one year. Meanwhile, our entire solar system orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
The planets in our solar system orbit (revolve) around the sun, and the sun orbits (revolves) in helical rotation around the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
One journey of our solar system around the center of the Milky Way galaxy is sometimes called a cosmic year. That’s approximately 225-250 million years.
So among the things I’ve prepared for the upbringing of my beta (son), it’s the study of the astronomy — it somehow fascinates me, harnessing the magnificent concept of universe’s creation through the eye’s of The Beholder.
Surat Adh-Dhāriyāt (Chapter The Winnowing Winds) – سورة الذاريات
وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ
And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander. | QS 51:47.
Though the baby-boy would only wobble in wonder trying to figure out, what his old-man wishes to deliver to him as a toddler. Well, you can’t go too early in teaching divinity & life’s purpose to your loved one.
Now on to a simple question, does the Milky Way galaxy, perform the similar orbits in helical rotation against the center of the universe?
Happy weekend folks, salam StarTrek dr Gemika! 😂😝😘
