Nothing quite like the chaotic beauty of colliding galaxies.
The @NASAHubble telescope captured these galaxies crashing into each other inside of the Hercules constellation, about 230 million light-years away. They were first discovered in 1784 by William Herschel and were originally classified as a single irregular galaxy because of their odd shape.

A long time ago, gravity drew the two galaxies together into the chaotic state we now observe. Stars from within both of the original galaxies now follow new paths because of the changes in gravity. Eventually the galaxies will fully merge to form a single, stable galaxy.

Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, will undergo a similar collision in the future with our nearest galactic neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy. However, this is not expected to happen for around 4 billion years.

با سلام پروفسور شاهزاده میشل پهلوی هستم نقاط آبی دیده شده را فیلتر کنید تا سیاره ها و کروات مانند ماه و زمین و حیات دیگر را ببینید آسمان کاملا بی رنگ است و دید ما و چشم ما به اشتباه می افتد

در حادثه ی شهادتی مثل شهادت این شهید عزیز چندین احساس با هم هست. یکی احساس غم و تاسف است از نداشتن کسی مثل سید مرتضی آوینی. اما چندین احساس دیگر هم با این همراه است که تفکیک آنها از همدیگر و بازشناسی هر یک و بیان کردن آنها کار بسیار مشکلی است. مقام معظم رهبری مد ظله العالی

It’s preparing to collide with us , earth is attracted to it’s enemy but needs it’s enemy to be it’s self again. We are it’s enemy but it’s the enemy that’s needed in time. It’s always got family . Earth is attracted to what lays inside. Earth is in critical condition of being able to withstand the pressure upon it, it is now regrouping with its enemy and the enemy has accepted the request earth asked it for help. In basic terms earth was being ignored has turned to surrender to its enemy for recieving help . It’s now depending on its enemy for help . Unless a troos is called then earth will accept and take action upon its enemy for help .
