the andromeda galaxy which is about 2 times the size of are home galaxy which we call the milky way galaxy the milky way galaxy has got 100 billion stars which is quite large but the andromeda galaxy has got 200 billion stars .When these to galaxys collide they will not form a dangerous explosion and will probably form a new illiptical galaxy which are oval shapes and cicle shapes and consists\ has got older stars

Not at the moment but in about 5 billion years it will merge with the Andromeda galaxy.

It will "merge" not collide with the Milky Way Galaxy in about 4 billion years times.

I suppose if we survive long enough it is possible. In fact if we stay where we are for another 4.5 billion years, Andromeda will "merge" with the Milky Way Galaxy (Our Galaxy).

There is no irregular galaxy passing close to the Milky Way. But there is a spiral galaxy coming close to the Milky Way, it's called Andromeda.

It won't "hit" but merge in about 4.5 billion years time - just about when our Sun starts turning into a red giant

No - there are about 200 - 400 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy

34.8 billion miles would still be in our galaxy, the Milky Way.

The Sun, a couple of billion other stars are all contained in the Milky Way Galaxy.

They are both spiral galaxies, except the Milky Way is a barred spiral and the Andromeda is a typical spiral galaxy. The Andromeda has at least twice as many stars as the Milky Way, and it has more mass. The galaxies are going to merge in 4 billion years, and now they are about 2 million light years apart.

Over time - billions of years - galaxies will merge with other galaxies. In about 3 billion years, the Andromeda galaxy will merge with our own galaxy, the Milky Way.However, the separation between galaxies is so great, that not all galaxies will merge unless the fundamental issue of the amount of mass in the Universe is determined.If we live in a "contracting universe" then eventually all galaxies will merge.

The Sun is one of approx. 200 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy.

Yes. The sun is one of the few hundred billion stars that comprise the Milky Way galaxy.

In about 2.5 billion years when the Andromeda Galaxy merges with the Milky Way

Difficult to know for certain. However, it seems likely that the Milky Way galaxy will collide with the Andromeda Galaxy in about 3.4 billion years or so. The supermassive black holes that are believed to be in the centers of many galaxies (including the Milky Way) will probably merge, and most of the stars of the combined galaxy will eventually settle into position in the new galaxy. But some stars will likely be flung out into interstellar space.

Big, compared to what? The Milky Way is what it is, hundreds of billions of stars that have formed more or less together. The question is, why isn't it bigger? We believe that many galaxies collide and merge; the Hubble has taken many photos of galaxies about to merge, merging, and recently merged. Our Milky Way galaxy may be one such; some astronomers claim to see up to 4 other "recently swallowed" smaller galaxies within it. And in about 4 billion years, we expect that the Milky Way will collide with and merge with the Andromeda galaxy.

The Milky Way is the home galaxy of the solar system.Its a barred spiral shape galaxy. It contains 100-400 billion stars and at least 50 billion planets.The stellar disk of the Milky Way galaxy is approximately 100,000 light years.The Milky Way is part of the local group of galaxies and is one of around 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe.

Our solar system is within the Milky Way Galaxy. The Milky Way consists of billion of stars including the Sun.

The Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy appear to be of similar size, and approximately similar structure. It's difficult to know since we're inside the Milky Way and we can't see the whole thing from outside, but we suspect that the two galaxies would have a similar appearance as well. Also, in about 4 billion years, they're going to collide and merge.

No, the Milky Way Galaxy contains 100-400 billion stars.

Yes. The Milky Way is just one galaxy. The Universe contains the Milky Way and at least 100 billion other galaxies.

Our galaxy is called the Milky Way and it is a spiral galaxy.

no, there are no quasars in the milky way galaxy; in fact the closest quasar to earth is over 2.5 billion light years away

Yes. The Milky Way is one galaxy of an estimated 200 billion in the known universe.

The galaxy is composed of 200 billion stars, And it is called milky way Galileo Galilei is credited with discovering the milky way shortly after building his first telescope

There are about 80-100 billion galaxies in the Universe. The galaxy we live in is the Milky Way galaxy which is only one of many. The Milky Way Galaxy is about 100,000 lightyears across.
