That would move these stars about 3.3 million kilometers lightyears in two billion years.

Indeed.
That's interesting!

Then if Andromeda is just a merger of smaller galaxies, than could our galaxy be the same? Our sun could be from another galaxy, technically.

I'm very saddened to hear about Hawking.  He and Sagan were among my early sources of inspiration for thinking about physics and astronomy.  And to think he came so close to seeing the first direct images of the objects that fascinated him.

Many say a new great will come about and they're probably right but you can never replace people like Sagan or Hawking. Their loss, while expected since we all die eventually, is a huge loss in regards to scientific understanding.

Juno snapped an infrared photo of Io.

Raw data is here (with images of Jupiter in infrared as well), with the portion at the bottom containing Io.
