Milky Way/Andromeda Collision (artist's impression)

The Hubble telescope has uncovered over 1,000 bright; young star clusters bursting to life in a brief, intense, brilliant "fireworks show" at the heart of a pair of colliding galaxies. This artist's impression shows what it may look like when the Milky Way and Andromeda collide.
