Solution Summary

This solution discusses the role of collisions in the formation and evolution of galaxies, which is one the longest running debates within the field of astronomy. One of the major theories explained in this posting is that galaxies are formed through the collision of smaller galaxies that create larger galaxies. Gravitational pull and the rotation around the center of the forming mass are discussed. It also goes into the two types of galaxies within the field of astronomy. The explanation is given in 271 words.
