What happens when two galaxies collide?

The collisions of the galaxies are one of the events that occur all over the universe. So what are these colliding galaxies?

NGC 6052 is a double colliding galaxy found in the constellation Hercules, about 230 million light years away. These colliding planets were first discovered by William Herschel in 1784 and initially described as irregular because of their strange shape, but now we know that the NGC 6052 is made up of two galaxies in the collision.

A long time ago, thanks to gravity, two galaxies entered the chaotic state we now observe. The stars from the original form of the two galaxies are now following the orbits caused by the new gravity effects. However, the collision between the stars is almost uninhabitable because the stars are very small compared to the distance between them. At the end of the work, these two galaxies will unite completely and form a fixed galaxy.

The Milky Way Galaxy that we are in is facing a similar situation with our nearest galactic neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy, but there is nothing to worry about right now. Because the collision is expected to occur 4 billion years later.
