Sprinklr : #HubbleFriday The Medusa merger (aka NGC 4194) was not always one entity, but two. About 130 million light-years away, an early galaxy consumed a smaller gas-rich system, throwing out streams of stars and dust into space. 🐍

Sprinklr : #HubbleClassic Wrapped in the gaseous remains of supernova explosions, NGC 1850 is a double star cluster in a neighboring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. A huge collection of stars near the center is accompanied by a smaller group (lower right).

Sprinklr : #HubbleFriday Messier86 is moving through space remarkably quickly — its current trajectory is bringing it back towards the center of its cluster at the incredible speed of over 543,000 mph!

Twitter Web App : NASA Universe There's a supermassive black hole, called Sagittarius A*, at the heart of our galaxy, but did you know that Hubble found that monster black holes reside in most of the other galaxies in the universe, too? ⚫ #blackholeweek

Sprinklr : Did you miss our Tumblr post on Tuesday? Check it out now to learn about Hubble’s 5 weirdest black hole discoveries! #blackholeweek

Sprinklr : A black hole lurks in the center of this #HubbleClassic image of globular cluster M15. ⚫ But it isn’t just any black hole — its an especially interesting type, with a mass between supermassive and stellar-mass black holes. #blackholeweek

TweetDeck : Hubble helped confirm that the giant galaxy M87 harbors a black hole 2.6 billion times more massive than our Sun and revealed stunning detail in the jet of subatomic particles streaming away from the central black hole.… #blackholeweek

Sprinklr : What happens when supermassive black holes meet gravitational waves? 🤔 Apparently the black hole can be sent flying! ⚫💨 Learn more about this Hubble black hole discovery and others here: #blackholeweek

TweetDeck : It’s #BlackHoleWeek⚫️! Ever thought about visiting a black hole? We wouldn’t recommend it …
Still want to? Well, we have some safety tips for you.

Sprinklr : #HubbleFriday Many of the best-loved galaxies in the cosmos are remarkably large, close, bright, or beautiful, often with an unusual structure or history. However, it takes all kinds to make a universe — as demonstrated by this image of Messier 110:

Sprinklr : #OTD 20 years ago, Hubble captured this #HubbleClassic image showing the eerie, wispy tendrils of an interstellar cloud being destroyed by the star Merope, one of the brightest members in the Pleiades cluster (also known as the Seven Sisters).

Sprinklr : #HubbleFriday UGC695 is a low-surface-brightness galaxy. These galaxies are so faint that their brightness is less than the background brightness of Earth’s atmosphere. This is the result of the relatively small number of stars within them:
