Spinning a spiral across the universe, 3 distant galaxies collide in a stunning new image captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. And it was stated in the news published by "Live Science" on February 18 that this cosmic collision is known as a tri-galactic merger.

When 3 galaxies slowly approach each other they rip each other apart by their respective gravitational forces. Such mergers are common throughout the universe, and such galaxies are the case for all large galaxies, including our own, the Milky Way; The size of which is attributed to violent mergers.

New configurations
Chaotic as they may sound, these mergers produce more new formations than they cause. When gas from the three neighboring galaxies collides and condenses, a vast sea of ​​material from which new stars are emerging gathers at the center of the newly united galaxy.

Meanwhile, the stars after the collision are mostly unscathed; While the push and pull between the three galaxies alters the orbital paths of many existing stars, there is plenty of space between those stars; So relatively few of them are likely to collide, Live Science previously reported.

Public science project
This group of galaxies is called IC 2431, and is located about 681 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Cancer, according to NASA, and astronomers discovered this merger thanks to a public science project called "Galaxy Zoo" ( Galaxy Zoo), which invited more than 100,000 volunteers to classify images of 900,000 galaxies captured by the Hubble telescope and not thoroughly examined.

This mass recruitment project completed in 175 days, which would have taken astronomers years to achieve, according to NASA, and the initiative has already resulted in a number of strange and exciting discoveries, like this one.

The future of the Milky Way
Studying the merging galaxies could help astronomers better understand the Milky Way's past and future. The Milky Way is believed to have devoured more than a dozen galaxies over the past 12 billion years, including Gaia Susage Marger, previously reported by Live Science.

And our galaxy appears to be on its way to merging with the nearby Andromeda galaxy about 4.5 billion years from now. According to NASA, this merger will completely change the night sky above Earth, but will likely leave the solar system as it is.
