At the end of the year, we show you a compilation of photographs taken by Hubble and considered by Forbes to be the best in the telescope.
Now, we show you six images made known by NASA that show collisions and mergers of galaxies captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Hubble: Impressive images of the collision of galaxies
Astronomers are really lucky, if we think that, first hand, they have access to absolutely unbelievable images of space events. Although not in the front row, we can see them, when released, and be impressed too.
This week, a team of astronomers working on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the European Space Agency published six images showing the brilliant fusion of galaxies. In fact, when galaxies collide, they tend to look distorted and strange.
As reported, the images of the collisions are part of the Hubble Imaging Probe of Extreme Environments and Clusters (HiPEEC) survey, which serves to better understand the formation of stars in wild cosmic places.
This is because, in places like this, dense clusters of stars appear that form from merging galaxies. Now, in addition to being especially bright, they leave evidence of long-standing cosmic collisions.
It is during the rare fusion events that galaxies undergo dramatic changes in their appearance and in their stellar content. These systems are excellent laboratories for tracking the formation of star clusters in extreme physical conditions.
