(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists from NASA and the European Space Agency showed a picture of a merger of galaxies, which was taken by the Hubble Telescope.
This is a rare astronomical phenomenon that is key in the formation of new galaxies, stars and their systems.
In addition, the merger of galaxies will sooner or later lie ahead of the Milky Way. In a few billion years, it will be completely absorbed by the Andromeda Nebula.
Thus, experts intend to find out in what extreme conditions the earthlings’ galaxy is threatened with extinction.
Earlier it was reported that European and American astrophysicists discovered an unusual system in the constellation Leo: a dense cluster of six ancient galaxies that were captured by the pull of a supermassive black hole in the central part of the constellation.
According to astronomers, the discovery will explain how black holes reached such a huge mass at the beginning of the universe.
