Our Life in the Center of the Milky Way Would Be Totally Different

Future Space

Our Milky Way is estimated to contain over 100 billion stars, and is about 100,000 light-years across. In other words, if you were traveling at the speed of light, it would take you 100,000 years to cross the Milky Way from one end to the other. But what if Earth would be in the very center of all this beauty? The center of the Milky Way is home to some extreme environments that would make even the bravest astronaut shiver. High-energy particles and intense magnetic fields can wreak havoc on electronics and spacecraft. Would we survive there?
