The Creation of the Milky Way
Hera used to be in conflict with the demigod and hero Heracles, because he happened to be the son of her husband Zeus and a mortal woman.
According to one myth, Zeus once brought the infant to Hera to suckle on her milk while she slept, but she suddenly woke up and pushed him away. From the drops of splashing milk was born the Milky Way, the galaxy in which Solar System is located.
