Two Colliding Galaxies

A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has been released by NASA’s Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth, are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red). The Antennae galaxies take their name from the long antenna-like “arms,” seen in wide-angle views of the system. These features were produced by tidal forces generated in the collision.

The collision, which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring, has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas.

?62 million light year.... Unbelievable performance by Chandra x ray and Hubble telescope..

P.S : Our galaxy will hit the Andromeada galaxy which if were lucky enough for our planet to evade other planets colliding with it or.. a planet will hit earth and it'll push it off it's axis and be really cold or.. a bigger planet will hit us and crush us or a star might pass by us and burn us from heat or radiation.
