    On a clear and dark night from a position with low levels of pollution, the Andromeda Galaxy can be easily observed in the sky by the unaided eye, even though it is about 2.5 million light-years away from Earth. The unaided eye, however, can only perceive the galaxy as a whole and is unable to distinguish features within the galaxy. Luckily, microscopes combined with the intellect of many bright astronomers over the years have allowed us to better understand what the human eye cannot see, in particular what lies beyond the Milky Way Galaxy in our neighboring galaxy. This paper will focus on some of the recent discoveries and observations on the Andromeda Galaxy that have been key in helping our planet comprehend what lies beyond us. Recently,…
