Hubble space telescope captures awesome galaxy image

The Hubble Space Telescope has snapped an unbelievable image of the Triangulum Galaxy, which is 3 million light years from our own Milky Way Galaxy.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a striking portrait of the Triangulum Galaxy, displaying a full spiral face aglow with the light of almost 25 million individually resolved stars.

The Triangulum Galaxy, also known as Messier 33, belongs to the Local Group - a gravitationally bound collection of more than 50 galaxies that includes the Milky Way and the nearby Andromeda Galaxy.

While it is possible to observe the Triangulum Galaxy under excellent dark-sky conditions, the human eye will only see it as a faint, blurry object with an ethereal glow in the Triangulum (the Triangle) constellation. For one, the Triangulum Galaxy is much smaller, with a diameter of just 60,000 light-years compared to the Milky Way's 100,000.

This enormous image of the Triangulum Galaxy - also known as Messier 33 - is a composite of about 54 different pointings with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys.

This is the second-largest image ever released by Hubble and shows Triangulum's central region as well as its inner spiral arms.

The 6-foot Simpson made some running hook shots, scoring in a way undersized guards have to near the lane, according to Beilein. Further below MI players Jordan Poole and Brandon Johns discuss the game. "Now that's not going to work for us down the road".

This image is only a tiny part of the large wide-field image of the Triangulum Galaxy created by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The latest image was taken with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys. What it does have, however, is a huge amount of gas and dust that allows for stars to be formed at a rapid rate of approximately one solar mass every two years.

Astronomers think that Triangulum has avoided disruptive interactions with other galaxies, instead spending the eons tending its well-ordered spiral and turning out new generations of stars.

The near-perfect distribution of stars within Triangulum has led researchers to believe that the galaxy has somehow avoided any major intergalactic collisions and has remained relatively untouched for aeons.

Still, Messier 33 remains an important find, its abundance of gas clouds drawing astronomers to conduct this detailed analysis. When stars are born, they use up material in these clouds of gas and dust, leaving less fuel for new stars to emerge.

As the junior member of this trio, the Triangulum Galaxy provides the valuable comparisons and contrasts that only a close companion can. The new image from Hubble shows two of the four brightest regions of Triangulum.
