NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has found the merger Arp-Madore galaxy 417-391, 670 million light-years away in the distant constellation Eridanus.
These galaxies are the result of a collision, moreover, they were deformed by gravity and twisted into a giant ringleaving their nuclei next to each other.
NASA indicated in a statement that “Hubble used his ‘Advanced Camera for Surveys’ (ACS) To capture this view, an instrument optimized for searching galaxies and clusters of galaxies in the early universe.”
Hubble’s ACS contributed to scientific discovery for 20 years and, during its lifetime, was involved in mapping the distribution of dark matter Study the evolution of galaxy clusters,
The captured photograph comes from a selection of observations designed to Create a list of intriguing follow-up goals James Webb Space Telescope as well as other ground-based telescopes.
“Astronomers selected a list of previously unseen galaxies for Hubble to observe among other scheduled observations. Over time, this Build a collection of interesting galaxies using Hubble’s limited observing time as efficiently as possible.”
