I came across a photo gallery in Science news offering a magnificent collection of galaxy collisions. When two galaxies collide with each other a lot can happen such as increased star formation rates and an intense volume of heat release.
Anyone who enjoys amusing themselves with ludicrous doomsday scenarios knows about the inevitably, colossal collision that will happen within the next 3 to 5 billion years. This collision is so well known and guaranteed in scientific predictions that it has even earned its own Wikipedia page.
Colliding galaxies are rather common in the universe. As you’re reading this, our Milky Way Galaxy is feasting on a scrumptious plate of miniature galaxies. Of course the larger the two galaxies involved in the collision, the better. And, how lucky we are to get a chance to see, in detail, some amazing galactic collisions and have the knowledge to analyze and understand what exactly is going on.
