Frankenstein Galaxy

Hey Space Placers!

I just LOVE how the Universe throws us curve balls.

This series of pics shows what went from a ho-hum nothing special elliptical galaxy to a whopper of a galaxy 7 times larger than our own Milky Way Galaxy AND formed in a 'Frankenstein' manner.

Read the amazing story here. Truly amazing....makes me wonder what else is "out there" that we are missing because it is "ho hum" in optical wavelengths.
