The Great Cosmic Collision

I'm thinking of the sun.  It's only one tiny star among billions of other stars in one tiny galaxy, among billions of other galaxies.  Thinking outward into time, I know that in perhaps three billion years (give or take) our own Milky Way Galaxy will collide with its nearest neighbor, the Andromedia Galaxy.  Think about it!  Scientists have a very accurate picture of what it will look like, you want a peek?  I dare anyone to watch this and not be moved.  If you have dial-up it'll be slow but don't give up.  And if the movie stops midway, click play again.  Just look at this.  Science Bulletins | Astro |

Ah Cathy - you are a woman after my own heart. I often ponder these issues. Our insignificance in the universe is mind-blowing. Thanks for the video clip link,
Kate.

Cathy... you were speaking to a Star... for I am one :D    or anyway, I am made of the same stuff or magic powder - I have dial up so I will go later own to watch what will happen in a little billion of years into the infinite big black space - apparently I read it was noisy in space?
