NASA photo: Space Agency’s Hubble Telescope captures two traces of asteroids | Science | news

This resulted in a threefold increase in the number of classifications. Thanks to the continued efforts of volunteers, this citizen science project is now nearing completion, with only infrared images left to explore.

In the meantime, the team is working to identify the asteroids that were discovered as part of the project – including the two depicted in this image – to optionally pair them with known asteroids in the Minor Planet Center database and calculate their distances from us. Stay tuned!

The extraordinary image of the asteroid coincides with the release of another extraordinary Hubble photo.

This shows the spiral pattern created by the “delicate and feathery nature” of a galaxy.

These “flocculating” spiral arms indicate that the recent history of the galaxy’s star formation, known as NGC 2775, has been relatively quiet. There is practically no star formation in the central part of the galaxy, which is dominated by an unusually large and relatively empty galactic bulge, where all the gas was converted to stars long ago.
