Take a look at the density of the stars. Taken by Hubble.

Tiare, it took me 3 and a half hours but the answer is 624 civilizations
died off in that picture.

But in another part of the galaxy, 624 new civilizations were born out
of the Abyss. New life for us to discover some day.

As I understand it the space between stars is so vast that one galaxy can pass through another without any stars touching. At least that's what has been said about Andromeda and the Milky Way.

yeah, but there must be a temperature change in more than one star, with a planetary sistem on it...if the Andromeda Galaxy would come right toward us, we will be death by the change of our temperature here on Earth.

I think our planetary sistem is like a clockwork, and if we detect any stars passing near us the whole sistem will change. It's hard for me to think there isn't a significant change in that picture.

Actually this is my favourite now:

Hubble shows two spiral galaxies (Antenna Galaxies)colliding together.

Probably the most stretched thread I've ever seen.
BTW, the full resoluted picture is too noisy, it looks much better when downscaled.

I can't view this thread properly either. Which is a shame because the low res pics are stunning, especially Tiare's latest.

John, what happened to all the pics I reduced for you? Lol, it took me HOURS, you little rascal!!! ;)
