Nuevas e increíbles curiosidades sobre el espacio profundo
New images by the Hubble and Spitzer space observatories show the farthest galaxy ever recorded as a diminutive blob that is only a tiny fraction of the size of our Milky Way galaxy. But it offers a peek back into a time when the universe was three percent of its present age of 13.7 billion years. The newly discovered galaxy, named MACS0647-JD, was observed 420 million years after the big bang, the theorized beginning of the universe. Its light has travelled 13.3 billion years to reach…
This space wallpaper reveals the celestial fireworks deep inside the core of a developing galaxy in the young Universe, as seen from a hypothetical planetary system.
Frenzied Star Birth in Haro 11 - Haro galaxies, first discovered by the noted astronomer Guillermo Haro in 1956, are defined by unusually intense blue and violet light. Usually this high energy radiation comes from the presence of many newborn stars or an active galactic nucleus. Haro 11 is about 300 million light-years away and is the second closest of such starburst galaxies. - Credit: ESO/ESA/Hubble and NASA
This artist's rendering shows a central black hole interacting with gas in the galaxy's halo to create a self-regulating cycle. In this cycle, jets shooting out of the galaxy's center heat a halo of surrounding gas, controlling the rate at which the gas cools and falls into the galaxy to form stars. NASA/ESA/P.

Galaxen NGC 4861 i stjärnbilden Jakthundarna är gles och som gjord för galaxvindar med laddade partiklar som skjuts ut i dess omgivning.
Every point of light in this picture, except two who are stars, is a galaxy. Each containing more than a hundred billions stars. Between each galaxy there is at least a distance of few hundred thousand, often over a million, light years.
