NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures one stunning picture after the other. The best part of these pictures is that you get to see many things in the outer space. The picture of the week captured by the telescope is nothing short of spectacular.
It shows a picture of a spiral galaxy, with a dusty cloud in the picture. What’s more is that now it appears as though we are the viewers of a galaxy, which is much like ours. The galaxy captured by the telescope is NGC 2985, which happens to be tens of thousands of years away from ours.
This massive spiral galaxy sits in the beautiful constellation of Ursa Major or the Great Bear. The galaxy is centered around a massive black hole in the center. However, there is a barrier, the barrier in the case of NGC 3169, is made of a potpourri of particles, which comprises of water ice, silicates, hydrocarbons, and other types of solid materials.
The picture was made possible thanks to the joint efforts of the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA. Furthermore, according to one of the ESA such types of galaxies are common in the space. This new galaxy is one of the key types of the galaxy which are found in the outer space. Furthermore, NGC 2985 is about 70 million light-years away from Earth.
The Hubble telescope was launched into the orbit about thirty years ago and is operated jointly by the ESA and NASA. The primary motto of launching this telescope in the space was to have a look at the deepest parts of the space. And over the past 30 years, the telescope has made over 1.3 million observations.
