Journey to the Andromeda Galaxy
The Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 2.5 million light-years (2.4×1019 km) from Earth in the Andromeda constellation. Also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224. No, Andromeda is not our closes galaxy. There are satellite galaxies to our Milky way such as the Large and Small Magellanic clouds. However, besides these satellite galaxies, Andromeda is the nearest.
The diameter of our Milky Way, is 100,000 LY which means that light would need to go at 186,000 miles per second for 100,000 years, in order to travel from one edge of the galaxy to the other. The Andromeda Galaxy's diameter is twice that width. It also contains twice the number of stars more than our Milky which has approx. 200–400 billion. Both galaxies are expected to collide in approx. 3.4 billion years, and will merge into a new galaxy.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.

Radrook Admin: Just restored the History section. Hopefully this one won't disappear like the last one did.
