Nasa's Hubble Space Telescope captures glowing images of galaxy cores.
As part of the online Galaxy Zoo project, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has found celestial and glowing objects in a distant galaxy, according to Chinatopix.
The twisted and looping shapes follow no shape and are believed to have originated from a supermassive black hole at the core of its host galaxy. These ‘quasars’ are the highly active cores of galaxies, which have sucked in material heated to the point of illumination—casting light far into space.
Research on these bodies of light was first initiated by Bill Keel of the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. While inquiry is still underway, Keel mentions that a possible reason for the looping brightness of the quasars is that they may be co-orbiting black holes. The images, witnessed from an incredible distance, can be considered records of the past and a useful tool for studying galaxy behaviors.
