“Monster” outflows of charged particles from the centre of our Galaxy, stretching more than halfway across the sky, have been detected and mapped with CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope. The new-found outflows of particles (pale blue) from the.
THE CORE OF OUR GALAXY, seen in infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Blue light is from stars, green light is from polycyclic carbon molecules, yellow and red light is from the thermal glow of warm dust. This image spans approximately 1000 light
Smiley face This photo taken of the galaxy cluster SDSS by the Hubble Space Telescope appears to show a smiling face at the center. The two eyes are bright galaxies and the smile lines are arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a rare alignment between two spiral galaxies. The outer rim of a small, foreground galaxy is silhouetted in front of a larger background galaxy. Skeletal tentacles of dust can be seen extending beyond the small g
