Space: NASA shows unusual images of a group of galaxies

Watch the video: NASA releases stunning images of an unusual group of galaxies.

To mark the 32nd anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA is publishing stunning images of a group of galaxies.
The shot was captured at a very special moment – because Compact Cluster 40 is one of the narrowest clusters of galaxies ever seen.

Amazing photos from space:

NASA celebrates the 32nd anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope with a fascinating look at a group of galaxies.

To mark the anniversary, NASA is releasing an arrangement of five galactic systems called “Compact Group 40”: three spiral galaxies, one elliptical, and one lens-shaped.

Five star systems crossed into space and became a kind of group of galaxies.

One explanation for this is that star clusters are associated with a lot of dark matter.

When galaxies get close to each other, dark matter can form a large cloud in which galaxies rotate.

As galactic systems move through dark matter, their gravity creates clouds—their motion slows down and collapses in on itself.

The shot was captured at a very special moment – because Compact Cluster 40 is one of the narrowest clusters of galaxies ever seen.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into Earth orbit on April 25, 1990 by NASA astronauts aboard the space shuttle Discovery.

To date, the telescope has made 1.5 million observations of about 50,000 celestial bodies.

In about a billion years, the five star systems will collide and merge into one giant galaxy.
Until then, it’s time to enjoy the amazing and rare shots from space.
