Caption

Colliding galaxies. Computer illustration of a view past an alien planetary system towards two galaxies colliding in the distance. These galaxies will ultimately tangle and merge to form one huge galaxy. Although the galaxies are still relatively intact, gravitational disturbances have caused them to distort and twist.
