The Milky Way Galaxy: a Funny Name
We live in the Milky Way Galaxy. But, why is it called the Milky Way Galaxy? This sounds like a strange name if you ask me. Where did this name come from?
In my opinion, our galaxy should be named more in the format of something you would expect from a science fiction book or movie. For example, I think a better name for the Milky Way Galaxy would be Galaxy NX4002 Zephyr. One of the reasons as to why this is a good name is because in every science fiction book, movie, or game, stuff like that is named much more scientifically. Sure, Milky Way sounds hip, but we’re talking about a galaxy here.
Let me ask you this: If you were watching a science fiction movie, and Princess Xalia from planet Xion 4 had just gotten into her Mark IV v1 Advanced Space Exploration Unit and began inputing her destination, would you want her to telepathically input “Milky Way” or “Galaxy NX4002 Zephyr?” Obviously this is a rhetorical question because we all know that Galaxy NX4002 Zephyr would be much better.
