Book: Cosmic Collisions – The Hubble Atlas of Merging Galaxies

In this book, we will give a brief and up-to-date introduction to the lives of galaxies — how they were born, evolve over time, and collide — using the best pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Many of these images are from a huge investigation of luminous infrared galaxies called the GOALS project (Great Observatory All-sky LIRG Survey, The Hubble observations were led by Aaron S. Evans from Stony Brook University (U.S.).
