Hubble team releases "A rose made of galaxies" This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope on April 20, 2011. The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one.

Orion's Dreamy Stars - NASA Spitzer Space Telescope

#Orion #Nebula. If the Orion Nebula was as close to earth as our nearest star (4 lightyears) it would cover the entire sky, so the only thing you'd be able to see is the sun rising and the Orion Nebula

Helix-Shaped Giant Molecular Clouds of the Milky Way Center. A research team of the Department of Physics, Keio University, has discovered a giant molecular cloud located in the Galactic center, approximately 30,000 light years away from our solar system

Hubble Watches Star Clusters on a Collision Course Astronomers using data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope caught two clusters full of massive stars that may be in the early stages of merging. The 30 Doradus Nebula is 170,000 light-years from Earth. What at first was thought to be only one cluster in the core of the massive star-forming region 30 Doradus has been found to be a composite of two clusters that differ in age by about one million years.
