An image that's dubbed "The Hand of God" by Astronomers



'Hand of God' captured in NASA image


What looks like an X-ray of a hand is actually the remains of a star that exploded 17,000 light-years away.

The astronomers who captured this image with a NASA space telescope call it the "Hand of God."

"We don't know if the hand shape is an optical illusion," said Hongjun An of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, in a statement from the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) Mission.

What the image shows is a pulsar wind nebula, a dying star and the cloud of materials left over from the star after it exploded. The particles are interacting with nearby magnetic fields, causing the particles to glow in the image, according to NuSTAR.

It's unclear whether the nebula looks like a hand because of the way the particles interact with the magnetic fields or if the particles are actually shaped like a hand.

NuSTAR says the star is about 12 miles in diameter and spins at nearly seven times a second. As the star spins, it spews particles "upheaved during the star's violent death."

The NuSTAR space telescope was launched in June 2012 with the goal of observing black holes, dead and exploded stars and "other extreme objects," according to NuSTAR.

Yeah, you cant put two pieces of toast in a toaster and slap a piece of cheese in there and call it a "grilled cheese" sandwich.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.

I guess you could toast the bread then pan fry the sandwich.

same with marine biology. We know more about stuff in space than what we know about the ocean floor. Both are fascinating to me.

In the nuclear world we live in I choose to toast the bread and then microwave the slices with the cheese added later. Saves me the enormous trouble of washing a pan.

I have done that. It doesn't taste as good but it's convenient.

Nah. Space is incredible and utterly limitless...Studying the ocean floor is like contemplating your navel.

Never thought I'd agree with you about something, but you obviously obtained my thoughts by a mind meld.

Somehow this just doesn't have the right ring to it: "Ocean, the final frontier. These are the voyage of an airtight bathtub whose continuing mission to go to the ocean floor and check some stuff out. To explore new lifeforms and go to places where no living person has gone before."
