Let me show you: Hubble in its 14th year

I spied on our neighboring galaxy and how!

For the first time ever, humans measured the rate of rotation of a galaxy using the data I provided them on the clock-like movement of its stars.

I observe, and NASA reports, the central part of the neighboring galaxy, called the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), completes a rotation every 250 million years and it takes our sun the same amount of time to complete a rotation around the center of our Milky Way galaxy.

The rest of the report can be found here.
