Star cluster thrown out of galaxy at speed of more than 2 million mph....doom ON!

Odd 2 SMBH ejecting material and neither picked the ejected material up... That's an interesting scenario, 1 would think something is attracting-pulling them with it, but if that was the case that which pulls them would be massive or small and made of very dense material.
Thanks for responding Vasa Croe.

Giant Black holes flinging globular star clusters like snot.....kinda makes one feel all warm and fuzzy out here in this strange and wonderful universe don't it?
maybe it probably a good thing we don't last much longer than a century.....

Sounds fast, but M87 is 53.5 million light years away. So even if this cluster were travelling at 671 million miles an hour (the speed of light) it'd still take 53,500,000 years to get here.

I feel sorry for my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great.....grandchildren. Lets hop we haven't already blown ourselves up by then.

Ha...I can picture it now. They are going to image that galaxy and it will be in the shape of a giant nose with the 2 SMBH's being the nostrils and they sneezed a giant star cluster of snot at us....

Better safe than sorry, this could be serious....

Stock up on dried food and ammo just in case and check the bug out bag incase you have to head out to the high country.

If there where Star collisions within the cluster would GRB and LGRB be emitted?

Better than the northern lights maybe. But it would suck if other beings lived in this galaxy!

I don't think there would be much need for anything if this were indeed upon us. This thing passing anywhere near our solar system would rip us apart.....ELE for the entire solar system methinks.

I would think so. I would also think that if they can see this massive star cluster they would be able to image these bursts already....I can't imagine with this thing being flung that fast through the universe that they are travelling in any controlled manner within the cluster....I would think these stars would be bouncing off each other constantly.

It was sarcasm........just a little jab at the doom porn, survivalist, obsessed members that revel in any and all, real or imagined global trauma.

Yes 1 considered the potential erratic Star movements, unless their energy radiation fields cause them to remain apart from each Stars EM field like magnets repelling same poles. And the smaller Stars being overwhelmed by the larger causing impacts which would emit the rays. Further the direction of the GRB or LGRB would be uncontrolled so 1 is not saying the rays would reach here directly. If collision(s) does/do happen and rays are emitted the process should be observable from EA*RTH space. Worst case they all collide and generated a SMBH themselves that just glides thru space like other moving SMBH and MBH... Its just odd there is no non speculative data share on what caused the movements to begin maybe a Star present or a few already exploded and caused a extreme shock wave like disturbance and forced the cluster to move outside its natural positions.

Both. It may be heading in our direction now, but in 18 billion years, when it finally gets here, our galaxy will have moved out of its way.

Seriously, you can't catapult an entire star cluster at a galaxy millions of light-years away and expect no evasive maneuvers. That's not strategic at all.

I was thinking they had already taken that into account, but none of the articles seem too clear and there is definitely a lack of information on even the basics (I dont think I saw any of them even mention how far away M87 is?).

Indeed. Which leads back to my first point of it being accounted for in the subsequent statements. We will have to take long-term UNPREDICTABLE evasive maneuvers to stand a chance. We certainly dont have anything that can compare to a Star Cluster Catapult (SCC). Wonder what its powered by?

Well judging by the fact M87 is so so far away I would say it's powered by BS!!!

Its like Andromeda colliding with our Milky Way, there so vast and the distances between stars and objects in them so great that they may very well collide yet simply fly right past one another with little or no physical interaction occurring. Long after we as a species are far removed from the universe I may add.


Don't know about the gravitational implications all the same?

Andromeda will collide with our galaxy. They don't expect any of Andromedas stars to collide with any of the Milky way stars when this happens. Just a tiny cluster of stars heading our way. They wont hit us or probably even have any effect on our sun even if they traverse directly through the center of our sun it is doubtful any single star would come close.

And if you thought we had a problem with co2 now you just wait and see what happens .Some one should get a hold of Michael Mann to compute that out ....

I guess that would depend on how many stars are in this cluster and how dense the cluster is. I would think if a single star passed anywhere within our own solar system that would tear us apart, let alone dozens or more.

On CNN they said that Mars will now get closer and closer to earth. So now mars went rogue now. WTF. This is much closer than this by far.

They reported this in the morning news about a week ago. When u all were at work.
