The future of the galaxy containing Earth, with a seismic event that should be enough to send Earth far away, could be what happens in the fascinating image that James Webb just captured, when death and life interfere between the universe.
The James Webb Space Telescope, operated by NASA with support from ESA and CSA (European and Canadian space agencies), has revealed the most detailed image ever taken of a spacecraft. Extremely violent galactic collision.
According to the sheet Space, The two galaxies in the photo have joined together to form a new galaxy with the common name IC 1623., but not really completely unified. The earlier encounter was crudely recorded by a number of other telescopes such as Hubble, but its true secret was only truly revealed to the “magic eyes” of James Webb.
The merging galaxy IC 1263 is 270 million light years away

Using his ability to peer through hazy layers of gas and dust, James Webb revealed the glowing center of the merging galaxy, where hot infrared light constantly pours in.
This glow pattern has already been studied and confirms that a powerful star formation process has just begun.
Galactic collisions and mergers can destroy many stars and planets, but new images show it also helps pairs of galaxies “to be young again”, begins vigorous star formation at a rate up to 20 times that galaxy containing Earth’s Milky Way (Milky Way).
To explore the phenomenon, James Webb had to use 3 of the 4 cutting-edge observation tools mounted on it: MIRI camera, NIRCam and NIRSpec spectrometerdeveloped in collaboration between NASA and ESA.
A study on fusion has just been published in a scientific journal Journal of Astrophysics.
Galactic collisions, which occur quite often in the universe, are a deadly event that even Earth cannot escape. “fate”.
In previous decades, people believed that the Earth would disappear when the Sun died – in about 5 billion years – but a few years ago, science proved that the “end of the world” would occur much sooner, only 2 billion years. the galaxy containing Earth is colliding with the giant Andromeda galaxy, which is currently hurtling towards us at terrifying speeds.
“Monster” The Milky Way once peacefully swallowed up about 16 smaller galaxies, studies show, but a collision with Andromeda was as massive as it would have been catastrophic, at least knocking Earth out of “living area” of the solar system.
This future can be recreated in James Webb’s recently released image.
Although this event could cause the extinction of our planet and many habitable planets existing in the Milky Way, it would not generally make the universe more deadly because heavy star formation would be accompanied by the appearance of future planets around the old “graveyard” of the collision.
