2 uniuversThe space telescope „Hubble“ presented pictures of two colliding galaxies. The telescope has filmed two massive spiral galaxies, which due to gravity are getting near to each other and change their structure. The bjects are called 2MASX J06094582-2140234.

Such an event could result in a fusion of star systems and the formation of a galaxy, or in two systems which passing through each other, cross. In the last case, however, the spiral arms have been deformed.

Our galaxy – the Milky Way is expecting the same: it will merge with its neighbour Andromeda. This process will last several hundred million years.
