      A giant cloud of hydrogen gas is racing towards a collision
      with the Milky Way, astronomers have announced.
      Smith's Cloud, as it is known, may set off spectacular
      fireworks when it smacks into our galaxy

      The gas cloud was discovered in 1963 by the
      young American astronomer Gail Smith working
      at Leiden University in the Netherlands.
      She subsequently left science but still lives in the Netherlands.

      Do you think she was smoking something?

      We've still got between 20 and 40 million years before impact - plenty of time to stock up on those Milky Ways.
