"The Mice"; A Computer Simulation of Colliding Galaxies
Simulation of the formation of the galaxy known as "The Mice." The simulation depicts the merger of two spiral galaxies, pausing and rotating at the stage resembling the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys image of "The Mice," dissolving to that image, and continuing on to finish the merger.
Simulation By: Josh Barnes (University of Hawaii) and John Hibbard (National Radio Astronomy Observatory)
