Like the end of the Milky Way, we know that it can come up a few billion years before the schedule.
According to a new paper published in the journal of the Royal Astronomical Society on January 4, the galaxy of our home is in a crash course with one of its nearest satellites, which is a spiral spiral called the Large Magellic Cloud (LMC). .
This cosmic crash, modeled by a team of astrophysists at Durham University in the UK, can now start from 2 billion years ago – about 2 billion to 3 billion years ago, with the long-expected collision between Milli and the nearby Cosmic neighbor, Andromeda Galaxy. (Adjust the clocks in your Doom accordingly.)
When LMC claims to be in the twenty-fourth of the galaxy's solar masses, the collision will leave permanent branches on both the galaxies, once the idle black holes are stripped, that the stars will fill the stars four miles away, and break the sky. Radiation
In a statement in Durham University for Computational Cosmology, a leading study author and postdoctoral fellow Marie Cout said in a statement: "The destruction of the large Magellick cloud destroyed by the Milky Way, will be destroyed with our Milky Way."
When the galaxies clash
Galactic collision is a common phenomenon in surprisingly crowded infinite space, and scientists find much better in modeling how a new merger can play. Using the supercomputer collision simulator, known as Igle, the Durham team modeled many possible conditions for the approaching Milky Way / LMC merger.
What will change for our galaxy? For starters, the collision will cause the LMC to pour fresh gas and stars loads in the black hole in the middle of the galaxy, once again a large person who falls asleep will breathe fresh life. According to Koutun and his colleagues, this type of collision can increase the black hole by its current size to about 8 times, possibly turning it into a quasar – one of the brightest objects in the universe, when the supermaceive black hole is released and occurs. Exits the glowing spatula at near-speed speeds.
If this should be done, the stars who now call the Milky Way Galactic Center house, unfortunately, they will be neighbors who know the neighborhood and love the new population of LCM's global colonies. According to the researchers, many stars would have landed in the black hole in the center of the galaxy; Other stars, can respond to all the additional masses entering their neighborhood, bringing the head into the quadrilateral quadrilateral miles away.
Luckily for any descendant you can get out of 2 billion years from now, some of the stars in the sun's normal region of the planet will be affected by merger, the authors wrote. Researchers predicted that any risk of life on Earth is "very unlikely" – and, on the brilliant side, the galaxy-New Quadrant of the Milky Way might actually consider the future meanings as "a spectacular spectacle of cosmic fireworks", as well as co-author Carlos Frank, Dorem's Computational Cosmology For the director of the institute.
