The Upcoming Merger of the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxies

After seeing this video and later browsing some other YouTube videos I came across a Triplanetary ebook by E. E. "Doc" Smith. Triplanetary is the first book of the Lensman series and begins with the collision and merger of two galaxies. Smith's first science fiction book, The Skylark of Space, is much better than the contemporary works by Edgar Rice Burroughs such as A Princess of Mars which is the basis for the recent movie, John Carter. These books and others such as Buck Rogers mark an advance in science fiction which took place in the Twenties.
