Recent finding by scientists at England's University of Durham suggests that our Milky Way Galaxy is on a collision course with one of its satellite galaxies, known as the Large Magellanic Cloud. While the scientists found that the impact this collision would have on Earth should be minimal they do find that there is a slight chance that the crash could send our solar system hurtling into space.
