Some sources say that the 2 magellanic Clouds be absorbed by our galaxy in 100 million years, while other say it will be billions of years, What makes the time estimates differ so much? According to the most recent estimates, which estimates are best supported? What do proffesional astronomers say about the likelyhoods that the Magellanic Clouds be absorbed within the next few hundred million years? Whenever the scientists say the magellanic clouds about to be absorbed by our galaxy in 100 million years, does it meen that there is a lot of evidence of that happening in such a short time, or is that a sort- of mistake?
