Chandra space Observatory were able to capture the process of merging of distant galaxies.
Scientists have created an animation showing the process of merging 2 distant from Earth, galaxies that reside in the system Arp 299.
The and animations have been published on the website of the space Observatory NASA Chandra.
Chandra space Observatory were able to capture the process of merging of distant galaxies. They are located in the system Arp 299, which is located at a distance of about 140 million light-years from our planet.
According to the Observatory, the system Arp 299 is interesting not only because it is located 2 galaxies merged together. It contains a minimum of 25 bright x-ray sources. 14 of these objects emit so powerful x-rays that they were attributed by astronomers to the “ultra-bright x-ray sources”, or ULX.
Astronomers find ULX in regions where there are violent processes of star formation. According to scientists, the ULX are binary systems where a neutron star or black hole pulls the matter of the neighboring stars, which have a lot more solar.
