The “bubbles,” which are made of high-energy particles, stretch out across 4,900 light years on one side of the galaxy, and 3,600 light years on the other. To put that into perspective, the Sun’s influence extends for about two light years, so these superbubbles are around 2,000 times longer, on average, than our solar system.
