It has been traveling in space for more than thirty years and recording dozens of images. Hubble Space Telescopeadded a new one to NASA’s collection. New images added to the Southern Strange Galaxies Arp-Madore Catalogue, 670 million light years It reveals the moment of merging of two galaxies far away.
This is how the Hubble Space Telescope recorded two galaxies
The images published by NASA had a great impact both in the scientific world and on social media. Photo showing the constellation Eridanus, about 670 million light-years away. Harp-Madore 417-391 He recorded a galactic duo known as
The telescope had previously taken similar photos in 2019. It had revealed another galactic merger occurring at a distance of about 704 million light-years from Earth. In the last photo, Hubble detected another galaxy pair distorting each other’s shapes.
The final images were captured with the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), which was specially designed by the European Space Agency (ESA) to search for galaxies. On the subject, ESA said, “The two galaxies collided with each other by gravity.”
It is extremely rare for ring-like structures to form during the merger of two galaxies. According to NASA, the rings form temporarily and can last up to 100 million years. The stars are then gradually drawn into their galaxies and 1 to 2 billion years then merge.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured some images that went viral on social media in a short time. Photos shared by NASA include the galactic trio Arp 248, also known as the “Wild Triple”.
