Some astronomers are using super computers to simulate the dynamics of galaxies. These animations are projections of what might happen using all the calculations that we have today. Its actually pretty damn kewl to watch .

GRAVITAS is an ongoing project to visualize and animate the dynamics of galaxies using supercomputer simulations. Galaxies are complex dynamical objects driven by the mutual gravitational forces between their stars and invisible dark matter. Gravity drives the interactions and mergers of galaxies leading to beautiful transient forms: spirals, tails, shells and ripples. Astronomical images reveal these structures but unfortunately they represent a single snapshot of a long and complex evolution.

Great find! My favorite is "Klemperer's Dream." I've been a fan of things like that since reading Ringworld by Larry Niven.

When I update the FSME lists in the next couple days I'll be sure to include this one.

Thanks for posting this info.
I'm going to convert and burn to DVD to play on my home theater, should look
