NASA Telescope Captures Amazing Image Of The Spiral Galaxy

This space project initiated by NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) is known to have managed to capture a number of beautiful images of outer space phenomena since 1990. This time, Hubble managed to capture an image of the galaxy NGC 5468, which is 130 million light years from Earth. Earth.

"Although it is approximately 130 million light years away, the orientation of the galaxy makes it easier for us to see stars, as is the case when looking at NGC 5468. Where we can see spiral patterns and shapes of galaxies in stunning detail in images like those captured by telescopes. Hubble NASA / ESA," said ESA, in a statement on its official website, as quoted by Fox News.

The Hubble Space Telescope was first launched in 1990 using the space shuttle. Initially, this telescope was predicted to operate in space for 15 years, but until now the telescope is still functioning well. It has been operating for approximately 28 years

The Advanced camera was installed in 2002 to carry out monitoring in space, although in 2007 the camera had problems, and was immediately repaired by astronauts in 2009, in a program called Mission Service 3B.

In addition to capturing views of the Galaxy NGC 5468, the Hubble telescope is also known to have captured several other phenomena that exist in outer space. One of them in 2018 managed to capture images of a mysterious galaxy dubbed the "Ghost Nebula".

The galaxy itself has become home to supernovae, or explosive phenomena that mark the end of a star's history. A galaxy can be hundreds of millions of light years from Earth, where one light year is 9.6 trillion kilometers.
