"If you waited a really, really, really long time that would eventually happen but by really long I mean many times the age of the universe so far" Robotham said
"Technically, Andromeda will eat us because it's the more massive one " Robotham said
"All galaxies start off small and grow by collecting gas and quite efficiently turning it into stars. Then every now and then they get completely cannibalised by some much larger galaxy" Robotham added
