NASA's Hubble spots cosmic smiley among colourful galaxies

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

The Hubble Telescope has stared into the abyss, and the abyss has stared back in the form of a smiling face in space found during a search for new galaxies and stars. It showed a number of bright lights in different shapes, colors, and sizes.

Hubble has taken a few photos showcasing banana-shaped arcs of light from across the universe.

The arc of light is a galaxy whose shape has been distorted and stretched as a result of passing a massive gravity source, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Because of its position, the space telescope can see and capture the effect, which cannot be detected by ground-based observatories.

When stars are born, they emerge from giant clouds of gas, called stellar nurseries.

Supreme Court allows census trial to proceed
Chief Justice John Roberts on October 19 had temporarily put the case on hold while the court as a whole decided how to proceed. The first, spearheaded by Democratic officials, was brought by 18 states as well as a number of cities and counties.

The image was taken in NASA's bid to better understand how stars are born. The nuclear reactions in the cores of these stars will burn through these supplies in only millions of years - a mere blink of an eye in astronomical terms.

Studying nurseries within different galaxies will provide information about star formation at different points in time and space throughout the universe.

The Hubble telescope returned to normal operations on October 26 after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope replacing a failed in October. For two weeks, the space observatory had been placed into safe mode as engineers figured out their next step of action.

The Hubble telescope was launched on April 24, 1990, via the space shuttle Discovery from Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
