Colliding Galaxies - 23 February, 2007
Tara says
Take a look at these pictures, they're incredible. I've seen them before and maybe you have too, but I can't get over how awesome they look!


Apparently the Milky Way is on a collision course with Andromeda, which doesn't particularly surprise me since there are so many galaxies out there. It almost seems inevitable that they'd all "crash" into each other at some point. What I find really cool is the fact that when this does happen, the Andromeda galaxy will be visible in our day and night skies. Wouldn't that be a sight?

It's another woman! Quick, get the net!

My favorite one of those is definitely the second. I wish there was a much larger 1280x1024 image for it so I could put it on my desktop.
The third one, however, contains the image of god (with the eye of a sheep, no doubt) comforting a pig baby. It was in the prophesy!

One thing I think is really neat that is when galaxies collide, no stars will actually hit. That's just because everything is so far apart. The only thing that happens is the gas clouds "collide" and it just throws off where everything goes due to the interacting magnetic and gravitational fields.
