DID YOU KNOW THAT:  The word “galaxy” comes from the Greek word “gala” which means “milk”. In Greek mythology, the Milky Way was created when a spray of milk came out of Hera’s breast (wife of Zeus) as she was breastfeeding Hercules (one of Zeus’ many illegitimate sons). This 16th century painting by Jacopo Tintoretto shows Zeus bringing Hercules to Hera’s breast.
