There currently is not any capability to see the entire galaxy at once. Because of this, there is no way of getting exact measurements, only approximations.

Because they lack sharp boundaries. They are not well defined objects.

Our solar system is located in the thin disk of the Milky Way.

The Milky Way is about 100,000 light years across.

The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy in which we are in. Earth is located within the disk of the galaxy.

Specify your Operating System.

No. The Milky Wat Galaxy is roughly disk shaped with a central bugle and spiral arms.

No, there isn't. The milky way is the name given to the band of stars we see due to the flattened disk-like characteristic shape of our galaxy. We can call our galaxy the milky way galaxy.

The milky way galaxy has 3 components.The disk containing the spiral arm,the halo,and the nucleus or central bulge

The ones in the bulge or halo are older star, the ones in the disk are younger.

The stellar disk of the Milky Way galaxy is approximately 100,000 light years in diameter and about 10,000 light years in thickness.

It looks more like a gigantic disk, with a bulge in the middle.

The most common element in the universe is hydrogen. This is also the most common element in the Milky Way.

The stellar disk of the Milky Way Galaxy is approximately 100,000 light-years (9×1017 km) (6×1017 mi) in diameter

The diameter is about 100 times as great as the thickness.

The Sun is about 27,000 light years from the center of the Milky Way, roughly 2/3rds the way out from the center to the edge of the galactic disk.

The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy, so it slightly resembles a spiraled disk. Nevertheless, it is impossible to assign an exact shape to a dynamic celestial object.

Most people refer to this as either the Milky Way or Galaxy.The Milky Way is where Earth and our Solar System are located.Aristotle, in his Meteorologica, suggested that the Milky Way may be made up of distant stars.Galileo provided proof that the Milky Way did consist of stars when he used his telescope.The Milky Way contains approximately a minimum of 100 billion stars and a maximum of 400 billion.Similar to other galaxies, the Milky Way contains a bulge, disk, and halo.The bulge in the center of the Milky Way is said to contain old stars.The halo of the Milky Way is believed is said to contain dark matter and globular clusters.The disk is said to be made of young stars, dust, and gas.The Milky Way is known as a binary system.

The Milky Way is a disk of stars with the sun near the center.

Through Milky way galaxy , most cosmic rays come from the Galaxy's disk.

You can save it to anywhere you want, like your hard disk or a USB key. You specify where you want to save it. If you don't specify, normally it will go to the My Documents folder.

The disc (which bulges outward at the Galactic Center) is 70 thousand - 100 thousand light years

It wouldn't matter where the Sun was, the Milky Way Galaxy would still have a diameter of around 100,000 light years.

Yes. But keep in mind that the capacity of a floppy disk is very small. It would be difficult to fit a full-length song at a decent quality on a floppy disk.
