We Aren't From Here

I don't know why I didn't hear of this before now and I don't know why it affects me the way it does, but it seems we're probably from a different galaxy than the Milky Way.

"We are from another galaxy in the process of joining with the Milky Way. The Milky Way is actually not our parent galaxy. The mystery of why the Milky Way has always been sideways in the night sky has never been answered -- until now.

Scientists have calculated that the solar sysem was originally in the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy or SagDEG which was captured by the Milky Way and has been orbitting it for billions of years.

"Sagittarius Dwarf is now so stretched out that it has lost gravitational hold and cohesiveness to our solar system and we will finally join the "sideways in the sky" Milky Way for the first time in our history. Our solar system is apparently going to finally take a right angle turn for the first time in history and start going around in the Milky Way whirlpool."

The path and inclination of the solar system always caused problems for astronomers but this new model neatly ties things up.

"Our solar system is travelling in a different direction to the rest of the Milky Way, scientists say.
When they used radio signals from two spacecraft nearing interstellar space to map the route, they had some unexpected results.
The researchers determined that the magnetic field in interstellar space is propelling our solar system along at a 60-90° angle to the rest of the galaxy."
