Amazing, Oh if only I could be alive to see this. It isn't doomsday but the rebirth of a solar system. Imagine this the first ever galaxy with two suns. An Earth with a oval rotation instead of rounded. Days would last a lot longer with only a few hours of darkness. We may even obtain another moon in our orbit. We would not have another ice age but a Desert Age of sands...sounds like a Sci-Fi flick...never mind me I'm just rambling.

The real news here is that we have now been able to measure the direction and speed with absolute accuracy.  4 years ago we could see that both galaxies were moving toward each other, but now the proof is in...a direct collision.  This is also proof that gravity has been attracting each other for a very long time, to the point where a direct collision is unavoidable.  Gotta luv mother nature.

Any gravitational pull strong enough to pull our sun will result in the total disruption of our solar system.

No. This will probably not have any noticeable impact on the Earth.

No. The Earth's orbit is unlikely to be affected. The new merged galaxy might have two galactic cores for a while, but that is about it. We will not get a new moon. It is incredibly unlikely that we will get another star.

No. The net gravitational pull from Andromeda, while vast, will change gradually enough that it will almost certainly not disrupt our Solar system. It will just ``slide'' our Solar system smoothly and slowly to a new location within the merged galaxy.

To add to what Sepulchrave said, the stars of both galaxies are so far apart, it is likely that most solar systems will be unaffected. Would be a nice sight in the sky though. Our sun may be a red giant around this period.

People are worrying about this now,but who knows, the human race might become extinct way before. The bigger concern is us not killing ourselves by nuclear missiles.

Would somebody please fix the title of the article? "Andromedia" offended my eyeballs.

I was worried we'd all die, but in 4 billion years I can't even imagine where humanity will be.

I thought that the likelihood is that our system will end up near the edge of an arm giving us quite a spectacular view of the new Galaxy? Although water will be boiled of the earth around this time wont it? I thought what happens in the merge was still a little up in the air to be honest, but it gives us something other than the Sun burning out to think about I guess!

I actually had no idea this was not confirmed earlier. I thought it was some time ago. I have mentioned the event in the ET section of the forum many times, our new Milkomeda Galaxy :D when people talk about the sun burning up. The Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy (a globular cluster with type II stars) is currently colliding with the Milky Way about 70,000 light years away from earth, and should hit the center of the galaxy in about 100,000 years. But if I had a choice, I'd like to be here in about 11 million years when Phobos will either smash into Mars of become a new ring around it.

It makes me sad that Earth won't be around for very long. If we as a species become space born, we could loose our place of birth and feel disconnected if it gets lost in history. All historical landmarks or information about the past would be burned up in the red giant if it engulfs Earth. There is two possibilities, Earth would move out of range of Red Giant but be stripped of atmosphere or be engulfed by the red giant. By the time the merger between two galaxies happen, Earth would either be gone or inhabitable.
