Once upon a time we thought the Universe was static and unchanging. These days, of course, we know differently. The whole Universe is in motion and, from time to time, galaxies pass too close to each other and gravity takes over; the results are often spectacular. Join us for a tour of the Universe as we look at what galaxies are made of, take a bird's-eye view of our own Milky Way, then look at what happens when gravity becomes irresistible, ending with a sneak preview of our own galaxy's distant future.
