  • Hubble Space Telescope observations of globular clusters (GCs) in the Antenn galaxy show clusters of clusters, or regions in the galaxy that span hundreds of parsecs, where many of the GCs are doomed to collide, and eventually merge. Several such objects appear likely to present a signicant range in ages, hence possibly metallicities, and their merger could plausibly lead to multi-metallic GCs. Here we explore this process with direct-summation N body simulations with GPU hardware. Our results… CONTINUE READING
