NASA, the US space agency has released some breathtaking images of the universe and celestial bodies that were taken by its telescope. Take a look:
-NASA's Hubble telescope shared an image of the spiral galaxy UGC 11105, gleaming from its home 110 million light-years away in the constellation Hercules.
-NASA's Hubble telescope provided valuable snapshots of galaxy mergers.
-This image shows an elliptical galaxy called NGC 3384. Elliptical galaxies are typically home to old and ageing stars, with limited signs of recent star formation.
-When a star approached a black hole too closely, the tidal waves tore away the stars' gaseous matter, resulting in this image being taken by the Hubble telescope.
-Nearly 10,000 galaxies of all shapes, sizes and ages in the universe were photographed by NASA's Hubble telescope.
-This picture depicts the mass explosion that resulted from a thermonuclear explosion on a white dwarf star's surface. Nasa's Chandra X-ray observatory captured this image of fireworks-like nova called GK Persei.
