Wow.


your point?


I would think the point is very obvious unless you actually believe what that comic prints/puts online.

Space never ceases to amaze me and I really think this planet has been pretty lucky to have sustained life for as long as it has given the plethora of way it could be destroyed.

Wow.


clarksvilleonline.com is also saying this along with nasa. We are getting closer to mars.

It is very sparse. I once read an analogy about the distance between stars as being like two bees over Europe. As such a sparse cloud approaches our galaxy it would stretch out into a long string due to gravity. I'm not stocking food for this one...

look at the orbits of earth and mars. and you will see. he,he,he. I guess nasa is a comic print too. and the orbits of planets also.

there are plenty more sources for me to give, all you have to do is read them.

you read, you might understand why they are getting closer.

they get closer then farther apart and so on as they orbit. Every so many years in this orbit, thru time mars gets closer and closer to earth each time. Thats what i gathered from reading different articles. how much time this will take i took a guess. Who knows when or what can happen. Time will tell.

Not to worry.. we will be long gone from our Sun going into the Red Giant phase. You got about a billion years to prep your bug out Arks people

Exactly.

M31, the Andromeda Galaxy will begin colliding with our Milky Way in about 4 billion years.

Other than a very beautiful sky there would be no bad effects of this because it wouldn't be a collision so much as a merger because again, the distances between the stars are HUGE.

So huge it is highly unlikely any two stars system would collide in this merger.

Your guess was way off though. Math helps.

Guess what then we will start to get further away do YOU understand how the orbits of the planets work



Here is a little video to help you

The article says


expected to endlessly drift through space

I think we're safe!

You could try googling the distance from esrth, which is ~ 53,490,000 ly. The fact that it is in another galaxy should give you the hint that it is very far away. Given that 2 million miles an hour is about 1/33 the speed of light, it will be about 1,790,845,200 (1.8 billion) yrs before it reaches us/the Milky Way galaxy.

2 million mph is 1/335 the speed of light, so the time is about 18 billion years. Of course, that extra 16.2 billion years doesn't make much of a difference.

Does anyone else get depressed by the vastness of space? I mean all these wonders to see but we can never get there!
Yeah okay there could be some wormhole tech or something I guess but I just doubt it. If it does come we'll never see it. As in maybe in thousands of years. But personally I don't even think it is possible. What a tease! Lol

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.

A little bit more here:

www.sciencedaily.com...


And that would be if the cluster was thrown in our direction -- which it wasn't. It is not heading towards us.

Even if it were, and it keeps traveling at 2 million mph, the it would take billions of years to get here. By that time, the Sun would be a dead star, anyway.

they are not really certain the 2 MMPH Star Cluster was a part of the M87 Galaxy are they ?

the speeding Star Cluster may have been an orphan Cluster that was flung past a collision with that Galaxy by those hypothetical 'Twin' black holes at the center of M87

it might be that the speeding Star Cluster was a remnant from a much earlier Galactic explosion (mega-super-Nova) to have that much speed in the first place (before getting flung around by M87)

as above so below... there has to be other lesser scaled phenomena taking place at the Cern collider that the physicists can model after


interesting & mind bending stuff, TY

And its also how long ago this happened if you think about it, so how close is it now? As the light from the incident when it happened has took 53.5 million years to get here...I am no good at working these things out, I.e. doppler effects and what-not, all I know is if its coming towards you its blue, receding is red, but figures I am no good with. Maybe someone else can clue me in? If its taken 53. 5million years for the light from the event to reach us, and taking in to account expansion, , where would it actually be now?

Hmmm...interesting question. I had not thought about that. So how far away is this cluster actually? I read somewhere that if the sun suddenly disappeared we would not see that happen for another 8.3 minutes. Would love to know exactly how far away this cluster is now if anyone can mathematically calculate that here.
