  • Using infrared images from the Spitzer Space Telescope
  • scientists have discovered that the Milky Way's elegant spiral structure is dominated by just two arms wrapping off the ends of a central bar of stars. Previously
  • our galaxy was thought to possess four major arms. This artist's concept illustrates the new view of the Milky Way. The galaxy's two major arms (Scutum-Centaurus and Perseus) can be seen attached to the ends of a thick central bar
  • while the two now-demoted minor arms (Norma and Sagittarius) are less distinct and located between the major arms. The major arms consist of the highest densities of both young and old stars; the minor arms are primarily filled with gas and pockets of star-forming activity. The artist's concept also includes a new spiral arm
  • called the Far-3 kiloparsec arm
  • discovered via a radio-telescope survey of gas in the Milky Way. This arm is shorter than the two major arms and lies along the bar of the galaxy. Our sun lies near a small
  • partial arm called the Orion Arm
  • or Orion Spur
  • located between the Sagittarius and Perseus arms.

  • Step 1: Remove your Wallmonkeys Decal from the tube and unroll it. Let your Wallmonkeys Decal sit at room temperature unrolled for at least an hour before application.
  • Step 2: Measure to make sure you have enough room to fit your Wallmonkeys decal before starting installation.
  • Step 3: Make sure the surface is clean. Wiping the wall with a dry cloth will work fine.
  • Step 4: Carefully remove the Wallmonkeys Decal from the backing.
  • Step 5: Start from the top, smooth the Wallmonkeys Decal onto the wall. Should you need to, you can always gently remove and re-stick sections to smooth it out. For best results, we recommend starting from the top portion of your Wallmonkey, and working your way down. If your decal is four feet or larger, we STRONGLY suggest you have two sets of hands for the installation.
  • Step 6: Gently smooth out any bubbles in your Wallmonkeys decal. Your hand works best.
  • Step 7: That's it. Step back and enjoy
