Some astronomers say that it will occur 10 million years.

No duh.

And just make a topic called "Future Collisions"

It might do a Roche Limit btw.

What Naru said.

Also... Triton is my favorite moon that orbits my favorite planet! =[

Yeah, tidal froces and gas drag are forcing triton nearer to Neptune. Eventually it will pass within the roche limit and either break up into rings or collide with Neptune.

I think we need a subforum for astronomy and maybe another one for physics related topics.
