Awesome view of Galaxies merging!

Awesome view of Galaxies merging!

Washington: The real wonder unveiled. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured the image of two galaxies merging to form a new galaxy. The incredible image captured by the Spacecraft recently.
According to the statement released by European Space Agency (ESA), the colourful image shows galaxy NGC 6052, which is located 230 million light-years away.
Over time, two separate galaxies were drawn together by gravity, and eventually “collided,” says the statement.  The image shows them “merging into a single structure.”

If the shape of the galaxy looks “chaotic,” that’s because it is, according to the agency. As the galaxies merge, stars within the galaxies are knocked off their original orbits and sent on new paths, statement said.
