Galaxies Playing Tug of War

In the Universe, galaxies are usually far apart from each other. For example, you would have to line up 25 galaxies the size of our own Milky Way Galaxy before you reached our nearest neighbour, the Andromeda Galaxy. However, the biggest two galaxies in this beautiful new picture are very close together – the space between them is only about half the size of our Milky Way Galaxy!
