Next Meeting 23rd April

Milkdromeda

Based on data from the Hubble Space Telescope, the Milky Way Galaxy (pictured right) and Andromeda Galaxy (left) are predicted to distort each other with tidal pull in 3.75 billion years, as shown in this illustration.

 

The Milky Way-Andromeda collision is a galactic collision predicted to occur in about 3.75 billion years between two galaxies – the Milky Way (that contains the Solar System, including Earth) and the Andromeda Galaxy. The stars involved are sufficiently far apart that it is improbable that any of them will individually collide. The resulting galaxy is nicknamed Milkomeda or Milkdromeda.  (Source: Wikipedia)
