Astronomy Science ~ Located just 2.5 million light-years away, the Andromeda Galaxy (also known as M31) is really very close to a move large galaxy. So close, and measuring about 260,000 light-years away, it took 11 different image field of satellite telescope Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) to produce a portrait of a beautiful spiral galaxy in ultraviolet light.

Although in the visible light image, the Andromeda spiral arms are prominent, the arm looks more like a ring in the GALEX ultraviolet view, dominated by massive stars that hot and young. As a strong formation of stars, the ring has been interpreted as evidence of a collision between the Andromeda galaxy and a smaller elliptical galaxy M32 more than 200 million years ago. Great Andromeda galaxy and our Milky Way is the dominant member of a local group of galaxies.
