Crash of the Titans: Milky Way Is Destined for Head-On Collision With Andromeda Galaxy
www.sciencedaily.com...




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 best news out of all of this....




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.


So it seems to be a long time down the road before there is anything to truly worry about. Just thought I'd give a heads up for a potential conspiracy in the distant future.

"Ancient cultures knew about this billions of years ago, and the powers that rule the world today have been keeping it a secret! Ahhhh!"

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.

Whether or not the two galaxies merge or come close to each other, we're talking possibly 6 billion years in the future. This is not the most pressing concern. We will likely have a large asteroid and other disasters hit the Earth before 6 billion years have passed. Of course if the two galaxies did collide, it would be interesting to speculate if the two galaxies might form a super galaxy.
