NASA : Hubble Captures a Galactic Waltz .- Telescopio Espacial Hubble Capta una danza de Vals Galáctica; en la Galaxia 2MASX J16270254+4328340

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., Esta curiosa galaxia - sólo se conoce por el revoltijo aparentemente aleatoria de letras y números 2MASX J16270254 + 4328340 - ha sido capturado por la NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope bailando la danza enloquecida de una fusión galáctica. La galaxia se ha fusionado con otra galaxia dejando una fina neblina, hecha de millones de estrellas, arrojando de ella en los senderos de largo.

Galaxy undergoing a galactic merger, leaving a fine mist, made of millions of stars spewing from it in long trails
This curious galaxy — only known by the seemingly random jumble of letters and numbers 2MASX J16270254+4328340 — has been captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope dancing the crazed dance of a galactic merger. The galaxy has merged with another galaxy leaving a fine mist, made of millions of stars, spewing from it in long trails.

Despite the apparent chaos, this snapshot of the gravitational tango was captured towards the event’s conclusion. This transforming galaxy is heading into old age with its star-forming days coming to an end. The true drama occurred earlier in the process, when the various clouds of gas within the two galaxies were so disturbed by the event that they collapsed, triggering an eruption of star formation. This flurry of activity exhausted the vast majority of the galactic gas, leaving the galaxy sterile and unable to produce new stars.

As the violence continues to subside, the newly formed galaxy’s population of stars will redden with age and eventually begin to cool and dim one by one. With no future generations of stars to take their place, the galaxy thus begins a steady path of fading and quieting.
