    Wow - that's amazing that we can detect and determine that. This is a great time to be alive.

    So at this point, the hypothesis is that eventually the LMC will gobble up the SMC? Must be quite the show in those galaxies when they are interacting like that, and even better when the merge (Giant Magellanic Cloud?)

    Yes it should be highly amusing.

    How about Greater Magellanic Co-Prosperity Sphere?
