Cosmic Collisions: The Hubble Atlas of Merging Galaxies

Like majestic ships within the grandest evening, galaxies can slip ever nearer until eventually their mutual gravitational interplay starts off to mould them into elaborate figures which are ultimately, and irreversibly, woven jointly. it's an important cosmic dance, choreographed by way of gravity.

Cosmic Collisions features a hundred new, many so far unpublished, photos of colliding galaxies from the NASA/ESA Hubble area Telescope.

It is thought that many present-day galaxies, together with the Milky means, have been assembled from this type of coalescence of smaller galaxies, taking place over billions of years. brought on through the big and violent interplay among the galaxies, stars shape from huge clouds of fuel in firework bursts, growing awesome blue celebrity clusters. the significance of those cosmic encounters reaches a ways past the lovely Hubble photographs. they might, in truth, be one of the most vital approaches that form the universe we inhabit today.
