A new study courtesy of Masafumi Noguchi of Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan) has suggested that the Milky Way might be a two-stage galaxy.

The new data comes from Masafumi Noguchi of Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan and has been published in Nature. Noguchi proposes that stars were formed in two different epochs under two different sets of circumstances. While two-stage galaxies have been suggested for galaxies larger than ours, Noguchi has been able to confirm that a process known as "cold flow accretion" played a fundamental role in the formation of the only galaxy mankind has ever known.
