Astronomers say that our home will collide with the Galaxy II. However, this is still far from the future. At that time, the sun had already changed.
Milky Way is facing a Galaxy Crash: In the roughly 2.4 billion years by the simulation calculation by Durham University's research group in the UK, The Great Magellan Cloud is connected to the galaxy of our home.
Astronomers believe that it is possible that the track will be thrown off due to the disappearance of two galaxies and our solar system. The team around Marius Kouton represents its prediction in the Journal of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS).
The Great Magellic Cloud is the most glorious satellite galaxy on the galaxy. The star system appearing from the Southern Hemisphere has about 15 billion Suns. It surrounds the galaxy of our home, which is about 300 billion in the sun, about 163,000 light-years away. Dwarf Galaxy arrived only in the universe of our universe just 1.5 billion years ago.
The collision is probably inevitable
So far, astronomers have thought that the Great Magellan Claude will either navigate the Milky Way for billions of years or because of its own speed, our house will escape from the gravity of the galaxy and disappear into space, the university said in a statement. A collision with the Milk Way has been predicted in almost two billion years in supercomputer simulation of the team surrounding the Quatun.
"Two billion years is longer than a lifetime, it is a short time by global standards," asserted the text. The merger will dramatically make changes in our home galaxy. The tragedy will bring the central Black Hole of the Milky Way to immense activity. It will contain large amounts of matter and thus increase the mass by eight times and create the so-called active Galaxy Nucleus.
"This phenomenon will produce a powerful jet of high-grade radiation that springs out of the black hole," says Quaton. "While this will not affect our solar system, there is a small risk that we will not be able to save the collision of two galaxies, which will throw us into the galaxy from space."
Galaxy crash is long overdue
This accident will throw a significant number of stars from the galaxy called a halo, which is a rounded array of stars around our galaxy. According to the simulation calculations, the halo will increase five times as a result of the collision. Also, our solar system may be thrown into a hazard.
However, at this time, our sun will swell on a red star, which makes our planet very hot for life. If humanity still exists, it will see other homes.
According to astronomers, the Galaxy crash is overdue. Compared to comparable star islands, Milky Way has included more than one other galaxies during the history of the universe, they explain. So neighboring Andromeda Galaxy lost about 30 times the mass of the galaxy as galaxy. The collision with the Great Magellan Cloud will bring the galaxy's statistics into balance.
After about eight billion years, according to astronomers, the milkway will accelerate, which will also be with the larger Andromeda Galaxy, which is currently moving towards us at speeds of 400,000 kilometers per hour.
