  Galactic coordinate system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Galactic latitudes are measured in degrees and increase from 0° at the Galactic Equator to 90° at the North Galactic Pole near the star Arcturus and decrease to - 90° at the South Galactic Pole in the constellation Sculptor.
Galactic longitude is measured in degrees as well from 0° to 360° originating in the direction of the axial center of the Milky Way in the constellation Sagittarius.
Since the plane of the galactic equator lies above the plane through the center of the galaxy the galactic center is offset from the longitudinal origin and is located at 17h45m40.04s, −29°00′28.1″ (J2000).

In mid 1993, Galactic was incorporated and in 1998, the supporting companies that formed Galactic; Galactic Tours, Galactic Printing, Galactic Promotional Advertising, and Galactic Consulting were integrated to form Galactic Marketing Incentives, more commonly known as Galactic.

 Galactic Meeting Abstracts
The VLA Galactic Plane Survey is the latest in a series of surveys made using aperture synthesis radio telescopes that provide HI line and continuum measurements with about 1 arcmin spatial resolution and 1 km/s velocity resolution over large areas at low Galactic latitude.
The Galactic CO survey of Dame, Hartmann, and Thaddeus (2001; hereafter DHT) is composed of both large-scale unbiased surveys, mainly concentrated within 10 deg of the Galactic plane, and targeted observations of clouds at higher latitudes.
Near the Galactic midplane the HII appears to have little relationship to the HI; however, at higher Galactic latitudes the WHAM survey reveals a close relationship, both kinematically and spatially, between the diffuse HII and "warm" (i.e., broad 21 cm component) HI clouds, including the distinct complexes of HI clouds at intermediate and high velocities.

 Scientific predictions made by the galactic superwave theory
He was the first to suggest such a short recurrence time for galactic core explosions and that our own Galactic core undergoes Seyfert-like explosions with similar frequency.
Mainstream media, such as Sky and Telescope magazine, suggested that this gamma ray pulse may be accompanied by a volley of high energy cosmic ray particles travelling at very close to the speed of light along a rectilinear trajectory and that the gamma ray pulse is produced by the radial outward movement of this volley.
In effect, they were restating the same Galactic superwave idea that LaViolette had proposed 14 years earlier in the face of stiff resistance from mainstream astronomers.

 Galaxy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When astronomers speculated that certain objects previously classified as spiral nebulae were actually vast congeries of stars, this was called the "island universe theory"; but this was an obvious misnomer, since universe means everything there is. Consequently, this term fell into disuse, replaced by applying the term galaxy generically to all such bodies.
The standard model for such active galactic nucleus is based upon energy generation from matter falling into a supermassive fl hole at the core region.
Elliptical galaxies, produced as a result of many galactic collisions, quickly lose their clouds of interstellar hydrogen gas, and cannot make new generations of stars.

The album is not without its excesses (the 90-seconds of applause baiting at the end of "Lumpology" wears thin quickly), but New Orleans's answer to Medeski Martin & Wood wouldn't have earned their place in the jam-band pantheon without an implicit understanding that anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
Galactic is a fantastic music group playing songs somewhere in the neighborhood of blues, jazz and funk.
This is Galactic's best release to date, just worlds better than their studio work.

A detailed and complete contour map of the galaxy seen in the light of gamma radiation is shown in figure 1.
Further evidence that gamma-rays trace the distribution of matter in the galaxy has resulted from the large-scale correlation of intermediate latitude gamma rays with the total gas column as derived from galaxy counts (Ref.19).
The gamma-ray emissivity derived from this method is locally in excellent agreement with that given by the comprehensive, low latitude galactic analysis of Strong et al.

Anyway, Galactic's tight new sound utilizes a few things that they hadn't dabbled in before; hip-hop sound (heavy drums and bass) and more songwriting contribution from all members of the band.
From the album's opening, the trademark Galactic instrumental qualities are there--great funk-rock guitar, keys, and fuzzed-out sax and harmonica.
Galactic also succeeds at trying different tempos and mixing it up a little with songs that are more like "instrumentals with a couple vocals." The bottom line: if you're a hardcore jambander who only wants to hear the same old 10 minute song with a long solo, Galactic is changing too fast for you.
