The Andromeda galaxy was created in a collision between two smaller galaxies, scientists have revealed. The international team of astronomers have created a computer simulation of its creation over time. The two smaller galaxies first collided 9.5 billion years ago, then they finally fused 5 billion years ago. This new research is believed by scientists to help us understand the formation and beginning of our own galaxy, the Milky Way.
