    It kinda sucks that I`ll never know what will happen to life here on Earth when the galaxies collide.

    I love explaining all of this galactic stuff to my students because it always gets them freaked out. (I always wait until the very end to tell them it`s usually a few billion years away.)

    Eventually, the Milky Way and Andromeda will merge into a single entity some astronomers call Milkomeda.
    Some astronomers? Alright, name one.

    intrigid: I read/saw elsewhere that galaxies colliding doesn`t necessitate stars (like our sun) colliding with each other, in fact, that would be very unlikely. So most likely it wouldn`t even change whatever the life situation is, just make spectacular night time view for a few of billion years.

    You don`t call natural phenomena constructions.
    If you do you might as well say a dog doesn`t poo, it constructs a poop structure.

    Looking at films like this makes you realise how small you really are.

    Oh and I also have a problem with calling galaxies building blocks.
    I`m ok with calling atoms building blocks of matter, because they can be arranged by humans and nature to form a wide variety of different things. No matter how you arrange the galaxies they would still only make "one" thing. And that is the universe. So unless you have proof of the universe is an part of some hyper giants underwear. Don`t.

    This is pretty theoretical this supposed future. A lot can happen between now and then to prevent anything like this. Also has anyone heard the theory that the center of each galaxy is a black hole, thus the spiral effect?

    I`d be more interested in what would happen with the super-massive black holes at the center of each galaxy. Would the larger absorb the smaller? So many questions?!

    It`s been the prevailing opinion for years that Andromeda will swallow The Milky Way. Kind of inevitable, unless we can figure out how to stop galactic drift...

    We won`t be around to see it . . . I mean as a species. We will be lucky to find Earth habitable in 50 years . . .
