indicated that a region near the center of one of the colliding
galaxies was producing stars at a furious rate.
Vogt drove north on Highway 33, then east on Highway 150, colliding
with another motorist at Boardman Road and causing him to crash, according to officials.
Rahae helped prepare a report for Congress on the probability of objects from space colliding
Since 1917, astronomers have observed six supernovas in NGC 6946, leading Blair to speculate that the current smashup could be the start of a much larger process in which a slew of colliding
supernovas blows a giant network of bubbles within the galaxy (SN: 11/21/92, p.
Because they are most often produced in that initial contact between colliding
nuclei, J/y particles end up moving through the remainder of the merged nuclear matter, or blob.
Instead, Richstone says, the gas must have come from a colliding
But most asteroids pass by a planet one or more times before colliding
In addition, Venus lies closer to the sun than the moon does, so a colliding
projectile has a higher orbital velocity, enabling it to generate more heat and melt more material.
Now, a computer analysis of the orbits of a small sample of near-Earth asteroids suggests that more of them will sing their swan song by diving into the sun than by colliding
with a planet or being ejected from the solar system.
The scientists developed this theory while working with computer simulations of two colliding
