NASA Photos Show Outburst from Potential 'Comet of the Century'

NASA Photos Show Outburst from Potential 'Comet of the Century'

NGC 1316. Their investigation indicates that NGC 1316 is an enormous elliptical galaxy that started, about 100 million years ago, to devour a smaller spiral galaxy neighbor, NGC 1317, just above it. Supporting evidence includes the dark dust lanes characteristic of a spiral galaxy, and faint swirls of stars and gas visible in this wide and deep image. What remains unexplained are the unusually small globular star clusters, seen as faint dots on the image.

Looking Back To The Cradle Of Our Universe  The zoomed image shows the region around the galaxy Abell2744_Y1, one of the most distant galaxy candidates known, harkening back to a time when the universe was 650 million years old. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope helped to narrow in on the galaxy’s great distance.

This new map shows the density of objects within our Milky Way galaxy. It’s a small section of a larger map, but it shows in exquisite detail the complex patterns of obscuration in the galaxy, due to interstellar dust.

Quasars are fascinating objects that can emit 1000 times the energy of our entire Milky Way galaxy. This prodigious luminosity originates from a region only about the size of our Solar System. They are fuelled by supermassive black holes – which might be billions of times as massive as our Sun – feeding on matter at the centre of their host galaxies.   The image shows one such quasar galaxy, NGC 4438, 50 million light-years from Earth.

Massive star formation (called G35.2N) with two spectacular jets. On the bottom an intermediate mass young stellar cluster (Mercer14) can be seen. Several jets are visible in its vicinity, as well as a region of photo-ionized material surrounding a young massive star. - Image  : University of Kent - http://scitechdaily.com/images/Researchers-Find-Numerous-Unknown-Jets-from-Young-Stars-and-Planetary-Nebulae.jpg
