NASA's Hubble spots cosmic smiley among colourful galaxies

In an image posted on the NASA web page, two yellow orbits can be seen over an arc of light painting a smiling face in the middle of an ocean of stars.

NASA recently shared a photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope that shows a formation of galaxies forming what looks like a smiley face.

The arc of light, according to NASA, is a galaxy whose shape has been distorted and stretched as a result of passing a massive gravity source.

Because of this and other similar photographs, the NASA researchers hope to better understand how stars are formed in cold parts of the Universe.

It is known that the resolution of a telescope large enough to study the smallest particles located in space, and especially the field of star formation. The arc-shaped object is actually a galaxy whose shape has been distorted because its light passed near a massive object en route to Earth.

As per NASA, stars take birth within a giant cloud of gas which they call stellar nurseries. Over time, these focal points become unstable, yielding to gravitational forces, until they become a kind of "seeds" that produce new stars.

Astronomers using a telescope "Hubble" has received the lonely dwarf galaxy ESO 338-4, which is located at a distance of 100 million light years from Earth in the constellation of the southern crown. It's important to study stellar formation within different galaxies to gain a richer context, which is why Hubble had its gaze fixed on a galaxy cluster.

The Hubble telescope was launched on April 24, 1990, via the space shuttle Discovery from Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
