NASA Detects Formation of Galaxies That Looks Like a Smiley

NASA's Hubble telescope finds smiling face among colourful galaxies

The team of engineers and scientists behind the Hubble Space Telescope will continue to study the data and images gathered by the spacecraft over the next ten years, and they hope to come up with great discoveries. It showed a number of bright lights in different shapes, colors, and sizes. In an image posted on the NASA web page, two yellow orbits can be seen over an arc of light painting a smiling face in the middle of an ocean of stars.

It seems Halloween is not over for the galaxy as NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured what looks like a smiling face, albeit creepy, in a cluster of new stars.

"The lower, arc-shaped galaxy has the characteristic shape of a galaxy that has been gravitationally lensed - its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to become distorted and stretched out of shape", said NASA. This effect is known as gravitational lensing and requires that the three participants (the light source, the massive structure, and the observer - which is on Earth) be aligned in a straight-line configuration called a syzygy. Stars are born out of giant clouds of gas which eventually grow unstable, collapsing under gravity. New stars are formed over the course of millions of years. Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) allows astronomers to analyze the luminosity, size, and formation rate of different stellar nurseries, which will one day allow them to understand the formation of new stars in finer detail than before. For two weeks, the space observatory had been placed into safe mode as engineers figured out their next step of action.

The Hubble Space Telescope has been in space, looking across the universe for almost 30 years.
