The Milky Way may have stolen stars from another galaxy

Eleven stars at the edge of the galaxy, roughly 300,000 light years from Earth, seem to have come from elsewhere. What’s more, Marion Dierickx and Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, believe they know the victim of the robbery: the Sagittarius Galaxy.
