ScienceDaily (May 31, 2012) — NASA astronomers can now predict with certainty the next major cosmic event to affect our galaxy, Sun, and solar system: the titanic collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy.
The Milky Way is destined to get a major makeover during the encounter, which is predicted to happen four billion years from now. It is likely the Sun will be flung into a new region of our galaxy, but our Earth and solar system are in no danger of being destroyed.

This has already been posted. Aswell it is science fiction, as the universe expands galaxies travell in straight lines not in a eleptical path. This makes the probabilty of a collision non existant, as the rate of universal expansion expansion is constant accross the cosmos. This theory made for a poor paper and would be a even worse movie/t.v show/ novel/grapich novel.
