Last Biscotti issue we published a scientific visualization of the galaxies in collision, now we found more realistic picture - an artist's conception - of how such tremendous event could look (or staged inside some Hollywood blockbuster) - more info:
"The galaxies themselves show surprising differences. One is a dead system that has formed all of its stars already and used up its gaseous fuel. The second galaxy is still alive and well, holding plenty of dust and gas that can form new stars.... both galaxies contain supermassive black holes at their centers."
Careful... It just moved
I would not be surprised if this machine starts crawling around the beach.... pulling itself after its rusted pipe leg.... messing with our minds...
