'Cosmic Collisions can be constructive and creative, ugly and beautiful. They are the spectacular result of meteors, comets, planets, stars, even galaxies coming into contact in a vast cosmic dance, choreographed by gravity. It was one of these explosive encounters that ended the reign of the dinosaurs and allowed the rise of mammals, and ultimately our own species.' - Charles Jencks
