The Hubble telescope took a picture of the spiral galaxy NGC 2903
This was written in the press service of NASA. It is known that NGC 2903 is located at a distance of approximately 30 million light-years away in the constellation Leo. She tried to study as part of the review Hubble the Central regions of about 145 disk galaxies.
This study was conducted with the aim of helping astronomers more appropriate to understand the relationship between black holes that lurk in the cores of such galaxies and the bulge of stars, gas and dust in the center of the galaxy in the form of Rugby balls, for example, that can be seen on the published photo.
It is noted that spiral galaxies are so named because in the middle of their disks are sleeves of stellar origin, emit bright light. It was on such grounds and feature a spiral galaxy.
“Spiral galaxy — a unique and very beautiful objects in the Universe. They are so named because they are in disc sleeves bright star origin that extend from the center of the galaxy. These sleeves spiral galaxy is very easy to distinguish from another type — lenticular galaxies, ” NASA said in a statement.
Earlier it was reported that employees of NASA have shown the amazing beauty of the pictures of the dunes of the planet Mars.
Scientists from NASA from time to time publish photos that are made on the surface of Mars. This time National Board of the USA on Aeronautics and space research (NASA) has published a beautiful picture of the Martian surface obtained from a “bird’s eye”.
The image shows a region Nili Patera (Nili Patera). Well you can see the amazing sand dunes, reminiscent of the ripples on the surface of the red planet. The orientation of the formations”, these half-moons” suggests that the dominant winds in this region blow from the East to the West. The image was taken from aboard the orbital station Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), which was launched in 2005. During shooting tool is used HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera, which is a reflecting telescope with an aperture of 0.5 m.
Recall that a NASA scientist is confident that the aliens were already on Earth.
As reported Politeka, a new NASA mission will study the past of the Universe.
Also Politeka wrote that NASA astronomers have revealed a fascinating spectacle.
