    Colliding Galaxies

    Thought this link might be of interest to some people. These look beautiful, but I just can't imagine what it looks like at ground zero.

    See? This is why I don't drive ANYTHING! They'll probably blame it on me anyway...

    Dude, in the middle of our galaxy, there is a hueg black hole.

    Talent is not something you are born with, it is something you acquire. Hopefully.

    Those images are fantastic!

    So I guess if you were outside the milky way, you wouldn't be looking out at a starry filled sky, you'd be looking out at a galaxy filled sky. That must be quite a sight.

    I've been watching this series on History channel. Some great stuff. Apparently there already ARE 2 other small galaxies colliding with the milky way right now.

    You are a level 8 ninja and even though you have a lot of weapons sometimes your ninja moves are your most powerful.

    So pretty! I wonder what happens when the two supermassive black holes at the center of the galaxies meet....
