Collectively dubbed Arp 256, the two galaxies are located some 350 million light-years away from Earth in constellation Cetus and have started moving toward each other for a humongous cosmic collision.

The image, taken by Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field Camera 3, shows the two galaxies in a spectacular cosmic face-off. Usually, interacting galaxies connect with a bridge of gas and dust, but in this case, the merger has just begun and there is no visible link in between. There is also a massive distance between the nuclei of the two galaxies.

Researchers utilizing the Hubble Space Telescope have caught an inaccessible match of banned winding universes converging into each other . While the two individuals from the galactic match seem twisted, the one on the best highlights since quite a while ago, expanded arms of gas, clean

While both members of the galactic pair appear distorted, the one on the top features long, extended arms of gas, dust, and stars, and appears bigger than other. They both will move closer to each other over next millions of years and finally merge into one big galaxy.

Apart from this, viewers can also see massive star-forming regions or stellar nurseries highlighted in a blue-ish tint. These are the places where gravitational forces interact and churn out hot baby stars from gas and dust.

Scared Horse In Nightclub Sparks Controversy

  Scared Horse In Nightclub Sparks Controversy A video of a startled horse in a Miami Beach nightclub sparked outrage from those who considered it animal cruelty. A Florida nightclub incurred the wrath of attendees and Facebook users Thursday and Friday for alleged animal cruelty. Mokai Lounge in Miami Beach, Florida, captured negative attention after videos taken in the club this week showed a dancer on an obviously unsettled horse.

The two spiral galaxies that make up the ARP 256 system have just begun a long and chaotic journey together, destined to spend millions of years colliding into each other before Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) captured the image, and with such

Interacting galaxies ( colliding galaxies ) are galaxies whose gravitational fields result in a disturbance of one another. An example of a minor interaction is a satellite galaxy 's disturbing the primary galaxy 's spiral arms.

Arp 256 was spotted some 52 years ago by Halton Arp and is one of the 338 nearby weirdly-shaped galaxies indexed in the catalog "Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies." It was created to understand the different stages of galactic evolution in the universe and includes a number of dwarf, active, as well as interacting galaxies.

In 2008, Hubble scientists were able to photograph the galactic merger for the first time, which ultimately led to this much improved and detailed image.

However, it is worth noting mergers like these are not totally uncommon. These extremely powerful events play a crucial part in the evolution of the universe. In fact, our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is on track to merge with neighboring Andromeda in about 4 billion years. 

The Hubble space telescope has been in operation for about 28 years and is still doing an excellent job at producing some of the finest details of the universe. However, with James Webb Space Telescope launching next year, we can expect even more beautiful shots from the depths of the cosmos.

The two spiral galaxies , NGC 2207 and IC 2163, were described by Hubble scientists as resembling 'a striking set of eyes.' A new video from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope offered a breathtaking look at two far away galaxies merging, or colliding with each other , continuing a process that is expected

Two colliding galaxies in the Canis Major constellation put on an impressive light display that was captured in a composite image using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. The two spiral galaxies are expected to finish their collision course in about a billion years, and will likely look even

'Affluenza' teen, Ethan Couch, now 20, nears prison release after DUI crash that killed 4 .
The so-called “affluenza teen” is set to be released April 2 after serving a 720-day sentence for violating the terms of his probation relating to a 2013 drunken-driving wreck that killed four people. Ethan Couch, now 20, will be released from the Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth, Texas, after serving almost two years in jail — 180 days for each of the four victims he killed as a 16-year-old — when his probation was revoked in 2016.The terms required Couch to abstain from alcohol use, but in 2015 a video appeared online, showing him playing a drinking game at a party, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
