Will This Happen?Today, there is no way to know whether or not these two galaxies will actually collide.

Milky Way Collision

Milky Way Andromeda Collision

Is this dangerous? The chances of any two stars in these two galaxies actually colliding are almost negligible. But it is possible that a star could hit our Sun, and make human life disapear from Earth.

In an estimated 4 billion years, the two largest galaxies in the local group could collide. This would be the Milky Way and Andromeda. Our solar system is in the Milky Way, and this collision could change the night sky as we know it.
