Galactic Interactions

At our February meeting we discussed interacting galaxies as part of my talk on the general theme of galaxies. Very shortly after that I found this article on the Bad Astronomy blog featuring this amazing hubble image of a galaxy being ripped apart by gravitational interactions.

On the subject of galactic interations, check out the relatively new blog of the same name, by astronomer Rob Knop, from Vanderbilt University, Tennessee. Some interesting stuff there already.
