(future galaxy resulting from merger of Milky Way and Andromeda)

Milkomeda (aka Milkdromeda) is a nickname given to a future galaxy resulting from the future Andromeda-Milky Way collision, the galaxy merger of the Milky Way and Andromeda (M31). This is expected to occur in about 4.5 gigayears, given their trajectories and masses.
