According to experts NASA, the Apocalypse that will destroy all life on our planet, is to wait at least another 4 billion years.
This is the conclusion of astronomers came after he received pictures of two galaxies colliding in the constellation of Hercules, is at a distance of 230 million light-years from Earth, taken with the Hubble telescope, informs Rus.Media.
These star clusters, it is noted on the website of the National office for Aeronautics and space research, were discovered in the eighteenth century by William Herschel. Then he decided that it was just the galaxy’s strange shape. Subsequently, the researchers came to the conclusion that we are talking about two star systems that come together.
NASA experts explain that the force of gravity many years ago beginning to connect galaxies to each other, changing the trajectory of their stars and plunging the system into a chaotic state.
Stars from both the source galaxies are now following a new trajectory caused by the new gravitational effects. However, the actual collisions between stars are very rare, because stars are very small relative to the distance between them. In the end, the galaxies will completely merge, forming a single stable galaxy,” – said in the message.
At the same time, the Agency warned that over time the same sad fate awaits the milky way – our galaxy in four billion years will merge with its neighbor in the constellation Andromeda.
