NASA : Hubble Peers into the Heart of a Galactic Maelstrom .- Telescopio Hubble en el corazón de la Galaxia Maelstrom

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., hemos recibido información de la Agencia Espacial NASA, sobre la captación de una imagen del corazón de la Galaxia Maelstrom, por le Telescopio Espacial Hubble: Esta imagen del telescopio espacial de la NASA / ESA Hubble muestra Messier 96, una galaxia espiral a poco más de 35 millones de años luz de distancia en la constelación de Leo (el león). Es de aproximadamente la misma masa y tamaño que la Vía Láctea. Fue descubierto por primera vez por el astrónomo Pierre Méchain en 1781, y se añade al famoso catálogo de Charles Messier de objetos astronómicos sólo cuatro días después.

The galaxy resembles a giant maelstrom of glowing gas, rippled with dark dust that swirls inwards towards the nucleus.
This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows Messier 96, a spiral galaxy just over 35 million light-years away in the constellation of Leo (The Lion). It is of about the same mass and size as the Milky Way. It was first discovered by astronomer Pierre Méchain in 1781, and added to Charles Messier’s famous catalogue of astronomical objects just four days later.

The galaxy resembles a giant maelstrom of glowing gas, rippled with dark dust that swirls inwards towards the nucleus. Messier 96 is a very asymmetric galaxy; its dust and gas are unevenly spread throughout its weak spiral arms, and its core is not exactly at the galactic center. Its arms are also asymmetrical, thought to have been influenced by the gravitational pull of other galaxies within the same group as Messier 96.

This group, named the M96 Group, also includes the bright galaxies Messier 105 and Messier 95, as well as a number of smaller and fainter galaxies. It is the nearest group containing both bright spirals and a bright elliptical galaxy (Messier 105).
