Website Detail Page

written by Christopher Mihos
sub author: Gregory Bothun
This website provides an interactive java applet which allows the user to model galaxy collisions. With this applet the user can study how galaxies collide and merge gravitationally and how the effects of the collision depend on the properties of the galaxies. The user can also recreate collisions between real interacting galaxies observed in the sky.  This website also provides background information on galaxies like: interaction dynamics, starbursts, AGN, elliptical galaxies, and minor galactic mergers.  There are also lab questions that teachers can use along with the applet and links to helpful resources.
