Maggie, the Large-Scale Atomic Filament
SyFy explains how the 3,900 light years long Maggie is changing the Milky Way.
Sorry Sag, but Maggie is 900 light years longer, giving it an immense length of 3,900 light years, and 130 light years across. It could also be a future breeding ground for stars. The atomic hydrogen in Maggie could eventually take molecular form (though how that happens is still a mystery) and some of it is already thought to have started morphing. We might not be around long enough to see the Milky Way get brighter, but many stars could spawn.
