TriviaEdit

  • The word "galaxy" ultimately derives from the Ancient Greek γάλα, -ακτος meaining "milk", via galaxias (γαλαξίας, "milky one"), or kyklos ("circle") galaktikos ("milky"). The legend of Heracles tells that his father placed him to suckle at Hera's breast, and when she pushed away the unknown baby, the spray of milk released fell upon the sky, forming the faint band of lights English calls "the Milky Way".
