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.

En 3.900 millones de años, cuando se produzca el primer acercamiento entre ambas galaxias, se producirá un aumento en la formación estelar claramente perceptible desde la superficie de la Tierra

Série de imagens mostra como seria a colisão de Andrômeda com a Via Láctea, vista da Terra. Claro, tome essa perspectiva com um grão de sal, porque a última imagem representa o estado da galáxia em 7 bilhões de anos -- quando a Terra provavelmente já não existirá. (Crédito: Nasa)
