Astronomers in a NASA news conference Thursday said that years of observations from the Hubble Space Telescope provide grisly details of a
long-anticipated galactic smashup. Astronomers had seen the Andromeda galaxy coming at us, but thought there was a chance that its sideways motion
would make it miss or graze the Milky Way. Hubble readings now indicate that's not the case. Scientists say the sun and Earth are unlikely to be hit
by stars or planets from Andromeda because of the vast emptiness of the two galaxies.
What do you all think about this. I find this very interesting that in 5 Billion Years our descendants will be looking at a completely different night
sky. We will have to go back to the stone age and explore space all over again, if we ever get to travel among the stars....
