Address of our Milky Way Galaxy

Dr. Garth Jones brought this piece of news to our attention. Scott Harlow commented:

“I found curiously ironic in that the title ‘Laniakea’ concocted by the astronomers disclosing this information from their research, and which translates from the Hawaiian as “immeasurable heaven”, is a name attributed by those people whose profession reduces to measuring “heaven”. Nice to know that subtle scientific humour is alive and well.”
