Cosmic Collisions - again

Cosmic Collisions

Colliding Galaxies

The preceding post was just a teaser, of course. Here is the full package. Excellent collection of all things collision in space. I used to drink 'colliding galaxies'. I strongly warn others than astrophysicist to do that. You need astronomical perspectives to survive them....

Swung my way by the super baby-faced disco lover.

It is real! There are a number of various galactic collisions out there in the universe. The Milky Way, where we live, will eventually collide with the Andromeda galaxy. Not any time soon, but at some point in time. :-)
