Hubble’s Next Discovery: Interacting Galaxies


You voted, and here’s your new Hubble superstar: a pair of galaxies that seem to have locked arms in an interstellar dance.

Of the six choices in Hubble’s contest, Arp 274 won by a landslide—67,021 votes, as compared to the next runner-up, the spiral galaxy NGC 5172, with 26,987 votes.

Now Hubble scientists are preparing to train the space telescope at their publicly elected target, with the goal of producing a spectacular new image by early April.

So stay tuned for more about this cosmic duo!

    I think we need to bring more ideas for this purpose. Involvement of young people can be handy in this regard. I am happy to find a good post here. Thank you resume

    While this subject can be very touchy for most people, my opinion is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do appreciate that youve added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!
