Humanity Is Doomed! Astrophysicists Say The Solar System Will Be DESTROYED By An Incoming Galaxy (but it won't happen for another 2 billion years)


A nearby galaxy is hurtling towards the Milky Way on a collision course that could fling our Solar System into interstellar space. But astrophysicists at Durham University, UK, said the collision between the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Milky Way will not happen for two billion years.



The collision could occur much earlier than the predicted impact between the Milky Way and another neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda, which scientists say will hit our galaxy in eight billion years. The catastrophic coming together with the Large Magellanic Cloud could wake up our galaxy's dormant black hole, which would begin devouring surrounding gas and increase in size by up to ten times.

As it feeds, the now-active black hole would throw out high-energy radiation scientists say there is a small chance that the initial collision could send our Solar System hurtling into space.
