Even though he has completed his 30th year on the job, he is still the eye of the world looking at the universe. Hubble Space Telescope, as of July 17 after being disabled for quite a long time like 1 month had started working again. Hubble proved that he was back on duty by sharing two new photos from deep space as soon as he started working.
Since the Space Telescope has just started its mission, the photos shared by Hubble were published in black and white. Yet when we remember that both images are hundreds of millions of light-years away, Hubble’s examining the universe there is nothing left to do but to appreciate his success.
Photo showing the state of two merging galaxies
In the first photo you see just above, it is 297 million light-years away, called ARP-MADORE2115-273. a pair of galaxies you are witnessing the cosmic dance. The two galaxies, which were intertwined by their gravitational pull, became one after many years will become a single galaxy. But at least we won’t be able to see it in our lifetimes.
In the second photo you see above, it has very long arms called ARP-MADORE0002-503. a huge spiral galaxy you see. Located at a distance of 490 million light-years from Earth, the gigantic arms of this massive spiral galaxy are said to extend up to a radius of 163,000 light-years, which means that ARP-MADORE0002-503 is our galaxy. 3 times wider than the Milky Way
It means .
