In teh article "Our Collision With Andromeda Will Look Like This" You write; ".. the ultimate fate of our own planet when the Milky Way fatally.."

The probability of star-collisions in colliding galaxies a a billion to one they say.
So the chance of colliding planets are even more remote.

Most likely, outr solar system would be untouched. We could be stripped of some of the outer planets and most likely Oort's cloud.

But colliding planets? hardly
(I know the source (pparc) said the same thing, but that doesn't make it true...)

Hi Kometkaj, welcome to UT! :D
I assume your post is in relation to a story, rather than a comment about the UT website?
Don't be surprised then if this thread is moved into 'Story Comments' and attached to the story thread you are referring to.
Be sure to check out the 'Introduce Yourself' thread, and introduce yourself... :D
Meanwhile, look around, enjoy, join in some discussions, and see some amazing pics!

But what about all the gravitational effects this would entail, not to mention the timescale, when is it posited that we will collide with the Andromeda galaxy anyway? Somehow I think the chances of us still being around whenever that is wouldn't be that great to start with.
