Of NASA Lunar X-ray Observatory There is a super powerful telescope named after Nobel Prize winning astronomer Subramanian Chandrasekhar. It has a history of making some incredible astronomical discoveries. It provided a picture of the first light of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A. In 2000, high school students used telescopic data to search for a neutron star in the supernova remnant. I. 443.

Now it has helped create some of the brightest images of galaxies, stars, planets and supernova remnants.

At the risk of stating: Space is too wild.

To be clear, these images do not necessarily represent what can be seen with the human eye. They are collected using data, not only from the moon, but from many other sources. They take what NASA calls the approach of “multivevelvance”, using data from many different spectra, from radio waves to gamma rays.

Let’s go through all of them.

M82

Not to be confused with the ailing French band M83, NASA says the M82 is a galaxy “driven to Earth”.

Abel 2744

Probably a wild image of flames. According to NASA, this is a picture of “the brightest supernova explosions in centuries”.

And Carina

NASA has described Eta Carinae as “an unstable system consisting of two large stars that revolve close to each other.”

Cartwheel Galaxy

When Fritz Zwicky discovered the galaxy in 1941, he said it was one of the most complex structures ever awaiting interpretation on the basis of its finite dynamics. It is 150,000 light years in diameter.

Helix nebula

It looks like a giant eye, but the Helix Nebula is actually a star moving out of fuel. Obviously this is what our sun could be in 5 billion years.
