Arp 147

That is the future of the Milky Way. Andromeda galaxies when they collide in four billion years. Ultimately they will merge into one big galaxy. In the above pictures, the two galaxies will also probably merge together as one galaxy.

These are so beautiful.

Really great, amazing views of galaxies and parts of the universe.

So very amazing. Great explanations of x-ray information, along with images of other wavelengths. Wonderful. Thank you.

Very beautiful! I love space. We are a part of it. Congratulations to NASA, further success.

Introspective viewpoints are a challenge to define, perhaps like the elements of space, to locate a viewpoint and understand it from our own limitations.

The universe truly is amazing.

Oh my god, these images are so beautiful. I love NASA.

If possible, I would like to have a picture of the distribution of “dark matter” after the collision of these two galaxy.

Thank you

Dear J. Madson,

Thanks for your question. The surface of the Sun is well known to pulsate in a complicated set of harmonics, resulting from internal sound waves that are excited by convection in the interior of the Sun and bounce around inside the Sun. I encourage you to explore more about this intriguing field of “helioseismology” using Google, beginning with:

This is so cool.

Hello, would you be able to compile photos of the poles of the sun and see any periodocity? and can you see any size diameter variations? can you see a harmonic?

These are so beautiful.

Wow. It seems like there would be a heart-like figure inside the right galaxy.

The universe never ceases to amaze.

Galaxy mergers and “collisions” also interactions have always fascinated me. This particular one is one of the most beautiful.

Has the elliptical passed through the spiral galaxy? That is what seems to have happened, just my own guess on the matter. Many forces at work here.

It is all very beautiful.

Wow, no words to describe the beauty, it’s just felt.

I really love to collect images from NASA. These are truly wonderful and amazing. I love NASA.

Best wishes

These photo in x-ray shows to us at least 3 black holes and the cone deep form, for elliptical galaxy a massive black hole in center. A massive Black hole, can be create to the neighbor galaxy, it don’t only depend of the accretion mass disk of a galaxy but really of the type of star.

Alien Encounter in GB on 2017-03-05 03:10:00 – Did not see a ufo

The first event was about 4-7 weeks ago. it was a figure like our human form. it was in my bedroom approx ten feet away. it was dark and i had gone to the bathroom, on return i saw part of this figure i stopped immediately as i had no clothes on. the figure gave off a feeling of being frightened but i was more worried that he could see my body. he had a head shaped like a large plate with curly wire twisted around the head with a little a piece extended. his colour was a dark bronze colour and made of metal, he had similar features to us. he stood about between five feet and five foot eight.He relaxed then and i got into bed and went to sleep. the seconed event took place about two weeks later. like the the first on the way back from the bathroom i notice our security lights had come on and was shinning on our ramp to our door. i could see this through the window and as i looked a tall figure about eight feet or more was coming up the ramp. he had an egg shaped head. he was slim with longer fingers and arms than normal. he was covered from head to toe in a blueish grey rubber suit he was slim, unable to see any facial features. because i was not covered again i just went to bed. i am not sure if you would be interested in these events.
