Some 60 million light-years away in the southerlyconstellation Corvus, two large galaxies are colliding. Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundreds of millions of years. But the galaxies' large clouds of molecular gas and dust often do, triggering furious episodesof star formation near the center of the cosmic wreckage Hubble Space Telescope, Orion Nebula, Astronomy, Milky Way, Galaxies, Galaxy Space, Astrophysics, Nebula, Space And Astronomy

Star - Formation, Evolution, Lifecycle: Throughout the Milky Way Galaxy (and even near the Sun itself), astronomers have discovered stars that are well evolved or even approaching extinction, or both, as well as occasional stars that must be very young or still in the process of formation. Evolutionary effects on these stars are not negligible, even for a middle-aged star such as the Sun. More massive stars must display more spectacular effects because the rate of conversion of mass into…
