The Collision of the Galaxies.

12 09 2008

I have a fairly long list of times I would want to visit, were I to become a Time Traveler. One time I would most certainly want to check out is Earth, 3 billion years in the future. It is at this time that the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy will begin to collide. It will take approximately a billion more years for the galaxies to finally merge into one Milky Wandromeda.

There are some pretty cool simulations on Youtube – I’ve posted one of the shorter and less detailed simulations. (If I have been reading correctly, we do not have to worry about our solar system – we should remain largely unaffected.)

Where are some times you would go if you were a Time Traveler?

I watched a pretty amazing version of this at the Natural History Museum in NYC last March. Does the science museum in Boston have any sort of viewing of this prediction?

Not that I know of, but someone should definitely suggest it to them if they don’t have it. I’ll try and find out for sure!
