discovery of ANDROMEDA GALAXY

assalamualaikum sume. alhamdulillah entry kali ni entry yg ilmiah skit. ngeh ngeh.

have u ever heard about andromeda? if im not mistaken, it have been used in STAR WARS. im not so sure. whateva. ANDROMEDA GALAXY the nearest galaxy to our world. in malay, our galaxy is called 'bimasakti'. but in English, their name is MILKY WAY GALAXY.


Andromeda Galaxy

Andromeda galaxy can be seen without using telescope. its actually 22 billion light years away. subhanallah. so amazing. with that distance it can be seen using naked eyes. but what more important, the first discovery of Andromeda galaxy was done by MUSLIM THINKER, ABD RAHMAN AL-SUFI in 945AD. he has explained in detail, including picture, in his book. subhanallah. his book really famous and have been used until nowadays. but as usual, as copy-paste-other-people-work-and-make-it-mine-nation, in 13th century, Europe's scientist also develop same sketch. huhu. so to all my frenz, be in mind that whatever invention come from europe, there must be muslim work behind it. be proud as a muslim. hope one day, i can be someone who can contribute to other :).
