What’s happening to this spiral galaxy?

What’s happening to this spiral galaxy?  spiral galaxy Although details remain uncertain, it surely has to do with an ongoing battle with its smaller galactic neighbor. The featured galaxy is labelled UGC 1810 by itself, but together with its collisional partner is known as Arp 273. The overall shape of the UGC 1810 — in particular its blue outer ring – is likely a result of wild and violent gravitational interactions. This ring’s blue color is caused by massive stars that are blue hot and have formed only in the past few million years. The inner galaxy appears older, redder,

A Winter’s Space Images of a Gullied Crater

A Winter’s Space Images of a Gullied Crater This is the location with the most impressive known gully activity in the Northern hemisphere. Gullies are active in the winter due to carbon dioxide frost, but northern winters are shorter and warmer than southern winters, so there is less frost and less gully activity.An enhanced-color image cutout shows recent gullies with bright colors. Gullied Crater. This image from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) shows the location with the most impressive known gully activity  The University of Arizona, Tucson, operates HiRISE, which was built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Boulder, Colo.

The ‘Atoms for Peace galaxy | NGC 7252

The ‘Atoms for Peace galaxy NGC 7252 The NASA/ESA  Hubble Space Telescope has produced this beautiful image of the inner parts of the distant galaxy NGC 7252. peace galaxy | NGC 7252 is Only rarely does an astronomical object have a political association. However, the spiral galaxy NGC 7252 acquired exactly that when it was given an unusual nickname. In December 1953, the US President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave a speech advocating the use of nuclear power for peaceful purposes. This “Atoms for Peace” speech was significant for the scientific community, as it brought nuclear research into the public domain, and

It was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy. Recently it was estimated to be 23 ± 4 million light-years from our Milky Way galaxy.

spectacular new image from Hubble Space Telescope NASA

spectacular new image from Hubble Space Telescope NASA This spectacular new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the group of galaxies called Stephan’s Quintet has provided a detailed view of one of the most exciting star forming regions in the local Universe. Stephan’s Quintet is a favored object for amateur astronomers and has earned a reputation as a challenging target for good hobby Hubble Space Telescope. The quintet is a prototype of a class of objects known as compact groups of galaxies and has been studied intensively for decades. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is a close-up view

A Misbehaving Spiral Galaxy Space Images

 A Misbehaving Spiral Galaxy regardless of its unassuming appearance, the edge on spiral galaxy captured in the left half of of this NASA/ESA Hubble space Telescope photograph is absolutely quite wonderful. Space in Images A Misbehaving Spiral Galaxy Located about one billion light-years in the constellation of Eridanus, this placing galaxy known as LO95 0313-192  has a spiral form similar to that of the Milky way. It has a big valuable bulge, and hands speckled with brightly sparkling gas mottled by means of thick traces of dim dirt. Its companion, sitting quite inside the right of the frame, is known
