Galaxy Aarp 273  When my body dies and my energy transforms I will surf stars like these in a spiral galaxy.  What a wild ride THAT will be!

Galaxy Aarp 273 - Arp 273 is a group of interacting galaxies, lying 300 million light years away in the constellation Andromeda. It was first described in the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, compiled by Halton Arp in

The Milky Way ! There are Stars in the Milky Way. It will take Light Years to travel from the beginning to the end of our Milky Way. In the center of the Milky Way there are a Black hole (Sagittarius A) The Mass of our Sun!

Amazing image of the Andromeda Galaxy

The Andromeda Galaxy - It is 2 million light years away from us.so what we see now is how it appeared 2 million years ago. It will collide with our Milky Way in 2 billions years from now - the two galaxies are heading towards each other at a rate of 430

For the first time, researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. (ESO)

Andromeda is our nearest neighboring galaxy at 2.5 million light years away. One single light year is roughly 6 trillion miles. Feeling small yet?
