The Hubble telescope recorded galactic "smiley"

The Hubble telescope recorded galactic

By analysing the luminosity, size and formation rate of young stars in images like these, researchers at NASA hope to better understand how stars are formed in the cold and dusty corners of the Universe.

Hubble has revealed a new image of a "smiling galaxy cluster".

NASA astronomers photographed the space structure, which is similar to a smiley face of two bright yellow balls and arcs in the form of the mouth.

"The one below, an arc-shaped galaxy, has a shape characteristic of a galaxy that has been gravitationally stretched, its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to distort and stretch out of shape", as NASA said.

"Stars are born within giant clouds of gas", NASA said. Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 is capable of seeing distant galaxies in unparalleled resolution, yet, high enough to locate and study regions where new stars are forming.

Meghan and her mother have remained notably close , while Megan's relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, remains strained . It's also a huge gesture as not even Duchess Kate's family has been invited to the official royal Christmas function.

Just below centre is a formation of galaxies akin to a smiling face. The star that gave rise to a unique cosmic phenomenon, is in the nebula Serpen at the distance of approximately 1300 light years from Earth.

The picture was taken by space telescope "Hubble" established in automatic Observatory in Earth orbit.

Peering into the lives of other galaxies can shed light on how gas is transformed into giant stars through time and space.

Earlier, scientists have uncovered the mystery of black holes in the Universe.

Originally required to last 15 years, Hubble has now been at the forefront of scientific discovery for more than 28 years. So gravitational lensing acts as a kind of magnifying glass for dim, far away galaxies and allows researchers to observe them easily.
