NASA Hubble Space Telescope Detects a New Spiral Galaxy, Can Solve Several Mysteries

NASA Hubble Space Telescope, which was employed in 1990 for studying the hidden factors of the mysterious extraterrestrial realm, has marked the discovery of a new coiled galaxy that can lead astronomers towards the complete exploration of space puzzles.  The telescope recently beamed back a cluster of spectacular images, which can help scientists to solve the centuries-long mysteries about the formation of space, galaxies, and the entire planetary system.

Hubble Space Telescope, ever since its launch in 1990, has marked a number of significant findings of stunning galaxies and hidden stars, and also presented exceptional imagery of the planetary system, which left the scientists and the space enthusiasts enthralled. The revolutionary discoveries and transmitted pictures have somehow changed the way; we used to think the cosmos and Space. And now, the NASA-owned and operated telescope has transmitted some of the best-ever images, which gave the scientists glimpses of some new spiral galaxies.

The Hubble Space Telescope, with its later-added Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) has kept on enriching our idea and comprehension on the space and celestial bodies. The telescope created a record when it managed to click around 342 images, in a span of 10 days only. At the end of the tenth day, the astronomers sutured all the pictures to verdict space exploration mission, and surprisingly, they came across a new spiral body, which is believed to be a spiral galaxy, like the Milky Way.

The recently transmitted picture by Hubble Telescope has revealed the existence of a new corkscrew galaxy, situated in the Virgo assemblage. The new galaxy, which is scientifically named as ‘RX J1140.1+0307’, seems to be a normal spiral galaxy, much like our own galaxy, the Milky Way. But in the first appearance, it seems to be misleading, as its location is creating a wooly enigma in the space. However, further studies are being conducted for exploring more details about the new spiral galaxy.

NASA, the US-based space agency recently published the pictures of the new galaxy, with the statement, which reads: “Our own Galaxy – The Milky Way, like other most large galaxies located in the space, bears a supermassive black hole at its core. But there are some galaxies, which are centered on lighter, transitional-mass black holes and the fresh RX J1140.1+0307 is such a galaxy.  RX J1140.1+0307 bear one of the weakest and lighter black hole mass, known in any gleaming galactic center.”
