Astronomers Disclose When Andromeda Galaxy Will Collision Into Milky Way

Prior calculations proposed that regardless of whether mankind still occupies the solar system at that time, it is probably not going to endure it. In any case, recent estimations offer a more splendid viewpoint for humankind.

A group of astronomers has figured out how to compute an increasingly exact planning for the normal crash between our Milky Way galaxy and Andromeda — our nearest galactic neighbor. Beforehand, researchers trusted that it will undoubtedly occur in 3.9 billion years, yet the authors of the research, which was distributed in the Astrophysical Journal, tracked the movement of stars utilizing the ESA’s Gaia telescope and confirmed that truth be told, the incredible collision will just happen in 4.5 billion years.

Also, the authors of the paper foresee that it won’t be a “head-on” crash, yet rather a “sideswipe”, which means it won’t be excessively troublesome and obliterating. Also, in light of the fact that the distance between stars in galaxies is still astronomically enormous, our solar system has every one of the odds to stay immaculate by the occasion.

Notwithstanding, preceding the collision with Andromeda, the Milky Way needs to withstand something comparative with the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) which is relied upon to occur in 2.5 billion years. While Andromeda is somewhat bigger than our galaxy, the LMC just has 1/80 the mass of the Milky Way. In any case, the collision with the LMC will influence our galaxy, purportedly expanding the mass of the supermassive black hole at its middle and reshaping the Milky Way into a standard winding cosmic galaxy.
