+ - Violent Galactic Clash May Solve Cosmic Mystery->

Submitted by astroengine
astroengine (1577233) writes "The mother of all cosmic collisions has been spotted between two galaxies containing a total of 400 billion stars, igniting the birth of 2,000 new stars per year! This incredible event was first spotted by the recently-retired Hershel infrared space observatory, a mission managed by the European Space Agency. This violent discovery isn't just awesome to look at, it could also help explain how massive, red elliptical galaxies evolved in the early universe."
