Beautiful Image Of Two Galaxies Colliding
 

 

A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has been released by NASA's Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth, are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red). The Antennae galaxies take their name from the long antenna-like "arms," seen in wide-angle views of the system. These features were produced by tidal forces generated in the collision.

The collision, which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring, has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas.

wait a second. this may sound stupid to y'all but...


What's a galaxy?

If you would've said 'two planets collided', i'd understand. If you said 2 stars... i'd understand. Two galaxies though? Huh?!

planetary system = collection of planets/rocks/comets/asteroids that are held together by the gravitational pull of a massive object at the center - usually a star. like our solar system

galaxy = collection of star systems/gas clouds/dark matter/etc. can be small as millions of stars to trillions. with a massive black hole at the center. milky way is a galaxy.

Are you serious right now?

You honestly don't know what a galaxy is?

Don't get it twisted though. Because two galaxies are colliding, doesn't necessarily mean that we can witness an insanely apocalyptic event. Galaxies are mostly empty space even though there are billions and even trillions of object in them. Sure it's possible that a planet or star may collide, but not much more than that. Now of course theres probably gonna be gravitational distortion and stuff.

Those galaxies I think are way to far out there for any instrument to detect planets. But surely there are some in there

Yea i was thinking man that's gotta be some crazy s**t. I wonder how would it affect if another galaxy crashed into us?
