"The entire Star Trek series takes place in ONE galaxy. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) at maximum warp (9.6) would take
almost 10 million years to reach this Galaxy."

I showed my son these pics and I commented that people don't believe life exists in space, he responded well we do so why wouldn't others....

All scientific, political and religious considerations aside, my personal feelings are that images such as these are every bit as valuable as the extremely old archeological information that occasionally come to light. The argument against space technology seems to always gravitate toward the expense. If there were a way to divide the expense between just those of us alive at this moment on our special little ball of blue, how could anyone say the cost was too high?
Money is spent on many foolish and destructive things. All of Man should have the chance to sit and try to appreciate and internalize images such as these.

So can we see these galaxies colliding in real time?
Can we perceive the movements? Or are they moving too slow?
Would be interesting to see.
