Galactic collision

United States Space Agency (NASA) released photos and video spectacular collision of two galaxies.

Antennae galaxy system called because shaped like antrena. He is located at 62 million light years from Earth – is presented in a composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue color), the Hubble telescope (gold color), and Spitzer telescopes (red color).

Collisions that have occurred since more than 100 million years ago has sparked the formation of millions of stars in the cloud – formed from the dust and gas – in the galaxy. The largest of these babies have exceeded the evolution of stars within a few million years they explode as supernovae.

Images from the Chandra X-ray showed a large cloud of hot gas Interstellar – which had been injected with a rich element of the supernova explosion. The gas is rich in elements like oxygen, iron, magnesium, and silicon – which will be incorporated into the new element of the star or planet.

Meanwhile, the bright dots in the picture caused by material falling into black holes (black holes) and

neutrons also from the remnants of huge stars. Some of the black hole mass is estimated to have nearly one hundred times the Sun.

While data from Spitzer indicate infrared light from warm dust cloud that has been heated by the stars of the newborn – with clouds that float in the middle of the two galaxies.

Hubble data illustrate old red stars, the filament of dust in a brown color, and new stars are born yellow and white. Faint objects in the optical image is the group that contains thousands of stars.
