Telescope views galaxy collision

Quote:Two galaxies collide in the constellation of Pisces, some 100 million light-years away from Earth.

Astronomers say it gives an insight into what may happen to our own region of space some 5 billion years from now. The Milky Way is expected to merge with the neighbouring Andromeda Galaxy, and swallowing up our Solar System.

Interesting. I wonder how many years back that explosion took place? They may already be a populated planet(s) by now!! Shock

Actually, Solar systems appear to stay intact during a galactic collision despite the huge gravitational forces at work. Most stars and smaller systems mold into the newly formed galaxy without being ripped out of shape.

Maybe Earth could survive a galaxtic collision.

By that time, the solar system would be in the throes of late Red Giant, or early White Dwarf. It will not matter then as ALL the planets in the inner system will have been destroyed, and only the gas giants and further out ones will be left.

Of course, if we manage to become a Class III civilization, the entire system will have been tailor made to our likes. And we will either be extinct, or probably a nonorganic lifeform by then.

Duh! I'm sitting here recuperating from multiple scorpion stings (6), and the picture below this quote just went over my head slicker n' snot. Are you trying to tick off benjamin? :roll:
