Beautiful picture of a spiral galaxy by the way. It's amazing we don't yet know what milkyway exactly looks like. Yes we infer but we haven't yet send a probe out of it, took a picture and send it back. And yes that is possible, we know because we can dream about it. In a way we are similar to those who lived before us not knowing what exactly Planet Earth looks like.
