Galaxy Mergers: When Galaxies Collide, What Actually Happens? What Would It Look Like?



Galaxies that move around through the Universe at times can cross path’s with other galaxies.  They are Known and characterized as Galaxy Mergers. Since the stars and planets in each of the massive galaxies are so distanced apart, they don’t hit into one another. Imagine the size of the galaxies for you to be able to comprehend millions of stars and planets crossing each others path’s without ever touching one another. A star that hits another star is a very rare event. The pressure and magnetic force that is caused by the galaxies crossing path’s, permits us to capture astonishing photos that show us the interaction of all the many gases and dust particles. The dust and gas meet face to face when these galaxies merge into one another. Causing all that we see in deep space when we gaze into the heavens.
