Cosmic Collision

Cosmic Collision

This Hubble site website provides two movies about galaxy collisions. The first movie called "Cosmic Collision" details the collision of the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy. The second movie, "Striking Encounters", discusses the dynamics of galaxy collisions. The site also features two podcasts, these are titled "Skywatch Podcast," and "Hubble's Universe Unfiltered Vodcast." This is a nice resource for those interested in the more visual aspects of astronomy. The movies are available as Flash files.
