A Primordial Quasar - The nearest quasars are now known to be supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Gas and dust that falls toward a quasar glows brightly, sometimes outglowing the entire home galaxy.

A SMBH lies at the center of this turbulent mix of multi-M° gas/ dust/ cold gas in the galaxy Centaurus A. Nova

Spacing out with your mind beyond the horizons of infinity to discover yourself in a universe to identify yourself in a world of your own.\Spaziare con la mente oltre gli orizzonti dell'infinito per scoprirsi in un universo che si identifica nel proprio cosmo.Roberto Rizzo ©Copyright

HubbleSite - Picture Album: The Antennae Galaxies/NGC These two spiral galaxies, drawn together by gravity, started to interact a few hundred million years ago. The Antennae Galaxies are the nearest and youngest examples of a pair of colliding galaxies.

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way. A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions. The diffuse X-ray data detected by Chandra (blue) are likely due to the winds from young, massive stars…

This image of the #PinwheelGalaxy, also known as #M101 or merges the data in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet and X-rays of four of the NASA space telescopes. Through this multispectral vision we can see that the young and old stars are evenly distributed along the spiral arms of M101. A great image that appears to have 3D effects.

Orion Nebula, the most well looked at star system in the universe - it is bright, young, colorful, mystique and can be seen with the naked eye. praise be to God

Andromeda Galaxy. So beautiful. I love how the colors get warmer as you get to the center

Andromeda Galaxy (the Andromeda Galaxy is one of the closest Galaxy to us, scientists even believe that someday the Andromeda Galaxy will make a collision with our Milky way and completely destroy both of the Galaxies). I learned this on How The Universe
