NASA and ESA's Hubble Space Telescope recently obtained a breathtaking, incredibly detailed photo of the Triangulum Galaxy, a spiral galaxy that is a close neighbor of the Milky Way. By combining this detailed observation with similar surveys of the Milky Way, Andromeda, and other galaxies in the Local Group, astronomers will be able to learn more about how stars form and evolve.
You may have spotted the Triangulum Galaxy-also known as Messier 33 or NGC 598-on a particularly clear night: it's that faint, blurry object in the constellation of Triangulum (the Triangle).
Measuring only 60,000 light years across, Triangulum is the smallest spiral galaxy in the group, compared to the 200,000 light years of the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Milky Way's 100,000 light-year diameter.
The Hubble Space Telescope's mind-blowing new image of the Triangulum Galaxy is nearly as huge as the galaxy itself. It is massive in size, as the above image is estimated to contain between 10 and 15 million stars, "an order of magnitude less stars than the Milky Way and two orders of magnitude less than Andromeda", according to Hubble's website.
The galaxy is a notable member of the Local Group of galaxies, an assembly of more than 50 galaxies bound together by gravity.
The runt of the litter also lacks the conventional bright bulge at its heart and does not have a bar connecting its spiral arms to the center.
The Hubble Space Telescope is the most significant piece of equipment the United States space agency has ever sent to space.
During star formation, the clouds of gas and dust in galaxies are used to fuel growth.
He received the 2019 Newton Lacy Pierce Prize "for his transformational work on the star-formation histories of dwarf galaxies in the Local Group, our galactic neighborhood".
The new Hubble image shows two of the four brightest of these regions in the galaxy: NGC 595 and NGC 604. One of these is the second brightest region of ionized hydrogen found across the entire Local Group-making it ideal for the study of stellar evolution.
