Transcript of Milky Way Galaxy Cell Analogy

Milky Way Galaxy Animal Cell Analogy
By Samantha Levine
and April Trausch
The center of the galaxy is the black hole, and the nucleus is most often found in the center of the cell.
Like how asteroids are found on orbital paths of planets, the ribosomes can be found on the rough ER. Asteroids aren't always found near orbital paths of planets, like how smooth ER doesn't have ribosomes.
In comparison to white/black dwarf stars, mitochondria recycles and decomposes proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. When stars die, the energy is used to make new things. For example, a new star could be created.
The gravitational force of the planets is the galaxy's lysosome because it transports undigested material to cell membrane for removal. The gravitational force effects the position of items such as planets or asteroids in the galaxy.
The cytoplasm of the galaxy would be space since it contains the "air" and "water" of the galaxy. Cytoplasm is mainly composed of water with free floating molecules.
Vacuoles can be used to store things for digestion and waste removal. The vacuole of the galaxy is the space of space. Objects can be stored or transported to areas where there are less items.
The magnetic force that planets exert keeps the moon in place which is similar to how the cytoskeleton supports a cell.
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The orbital paths of planets
are like the highway of the galaxy, and the planets are cars. The ER stores, separates, and serves as the cell's transport system.
Cell Membrane
Like the atmosphere of our planet, Earth, the cell membrane allows some things to enter---such as UV rays---and others not.
Golgi Apparatus
A solar flare sends out waves of energy into the galaxy, and the golgi apparatus sends out sacs or bubbles to different parts of the cell.
