Blazing Black Holes Spotted in Spiral Beauty This new view of spiral galaxy IC also known as Caldwell includes data from NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR. IC 342 lies 7 million light-years away in the Camelopardalis constellation.
Arp 147 is a galaxy about 430 million light years from Earth. In this image, the Hubble data has been colored red, green and blue, and the Chandra X-ray data has been colored magenta. Happy Birthday, Hubble: Seeing the Universe in a New Light
Scientists discover planets which travel up to 30million miles per hour after coming into contact with black holes
Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are
The Tadpole Galaxy is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located 400 mly from Earth toward the northern constellation Draco. It's most dramatic features are a trail of stars about ly long & massive star clusters. It is thought that a more compact gal
The area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.
At the centre of every large galaxy lives a giant black hole that swallows gas or dust clouds that stray too close. As matter spirals inwards, it is compressed into an accretion disk. By the time it falls into the black hole, the matter is so hot that muc
