Two different research papers unveil interesting findings about Ceres

A novel study published in the journal Nature Geoscience has unveiled new findings about Ceres. Before this research, Ceres was considered to be an ice-rich space rock and could be a mix of rock, ice, salts and other minerals. Also, bright spots on the large Occator impact crater have different salts owing to which they are quite reflective, unveils a different research paper.

Hubble Space Telescope notices stellar fireworks in ‘skyrocket’ galaxy

American space agency NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured images of a spectacular fireworks show in a small, nearby galaxy, which resembles a July 4th skyrocket, thus making it known that such shows are not just confined to Earth's skies.

The galaxy, Kiso 5639, is shaped like a flattened pancake resembling a skyrocket due to its tilted edge-on property. It has a brilliant blazing head and a long, star-studded tail with a firestorm of star birth lighting up one end of the diminutive.

Hubble images of nearby tadpole galaxy shed new light on its formation

Lately, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has recorded firework display in a small, nearby galaxy known as Kiso 5639. The dwarf galaxy resembles a July4th skyrocket, as it is shaped like a flattened pancake and is tilted edge-on.

Kiso 5639 is a rare galaxy because it is a tadpole galaxy and they are quite rare in the universe and rarer in the local universe. There are just 20 tadpole galaxies in the local areas closest to earth. The images provide an idea that many of the stars in the galaxy continue to form as it moves through gasless desert in the universe.
