gravity collider

When I first saw TFA I couldn’t get this image out of my head of two gallaxies colliding, in connection to Rey and Kylo.

Two strong forces who are pulled by each other’s gravity and collide and spin into one massive galaxy. It may seem very destructive, but there is such a distance between each individual star that they will hardly touch.

For Rey and Kylo, they are guaranteed to meet again, their stories are entertwined now. In the first film their encounters were very head-on, much like the initial clash of the two galaxies, and then they part. But like the galaxies I am sure they will continue to circle each other. 

First signs of self-interacting dark matter?

Dark matter may not be completely dark after all

For the first time, dark matter may have been observed interacting with other dark matter in a way other than through the force of gravity. Observations of colliding galaxies made with ESO’s Very Large Telescope and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have picked up the first intriguing hints about the nature of this mysterious component of the Universe.
