In a first-of-its-kind astronomical breakthrough, a team of astrophysicists from the Northwestern University has tracked down that, up to half of the elements and matters, presented in our local galaxy – Milky Way is more likely to be sourced from distant galaxies, which means one of us is may be made of extragalactic matter. The view is completely contrary to the previously standard lore, which claims each one of us is not only star-stuffed but also is galaxy stuffed.

As the new research result revealed, almost half of our own bodies, the sun, stars, and even the earth contains alien atoms or ‘Extragalactic Matter’ which is sourced from other distant galaxies. Researchers, using the supercomputer simulations, have discovered a major and most unanticipated mode for determining how galaxies, including Earth’s own Milky Way, get hold of their matter – intergalactic transfer.

As revealed by the simulations, supernova explosions massively throw out the abundant quantity of gas from distant galaxies, which eventually contribute the atoms to be shifted from one galaxy to another through powerful galactic storms. Intergalactic reassign is a recently recognized celestial phenomenon, which according to the new simulations will be crucial for giving a broad view about how galaxies changes.

Putting it simply, the new study claimed, “It is more likely that most of the matter found in the Milky Way belonged to other galaxies before they were thrown out by a powerful air stream, and passed across the entire intergalactic space and finally set up their new home in our galaxy – the Milky Way.

According to Dr. Daniel Angles-Alcazar, the lead researcher from Northwestern University in the US, “The new scientific simulation method has a paved path for exploring how much of the matter, out of which everything on earth has been formed. As we discovered, almost half of the matter, we are made of belonging to distant galaxies, which mean we can judge ourselves as extra-galactic migrants or space travelers.”

The findings are entirely based on the supercomputer simulations of galaxy development which are so challenging and complex that they need the comparable of multi-million hours of nonstop number chomping to be defined. The research team, by comprehensively tracking the streams of matter in the supercomputer simulations, found out the signatures of gassy material, traveling from tinier galaxies to larger galaxies like Earth’s Milky Way, where they joined together to create stars.
