The first images from the telescope after the disaster include a pair of colliding galaxies and a galaxy with unusually elongated arms.

NASA has released the first images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope since it restarted normal scientific observations on July 17 after correcting a computer anomaly in the instrument.

And the US space agency reported last Saturday that its experts has changed Successfully supporting ‘hardware’ on the telescope to repair لإصلاح Problem From the payload computer that happened on June 13th. Technical issues have caused notes to be suspended for over a month.

Bill Nelson, Administrator of NASA, said in a report Release.

The first images from the telescope after the disaster include a pair of colliding galaxies and a galaxy with unusually elongated arms.

ARP-MADORE2115-273 is a rare example of a pair of interacting galaxies in the Southern Hemisphere. This amazing system is 297 million light-years away from Earth. Astronomers previously thought it was a “collision ring” system due to the forward merger of two galaxies. New observations from the telescope show that the ongoing interaction between the formations is more complex, leaving behind a rich network of stars and dusty gases.

For its part, ARP-MADORE0002-503 is a large galaxy with unusual spiral arms, at a distance of 490 million light-years. Its arms span a radius of 163,000 light-years, making it three times more spacious than the Milky Way. While most disk galaxies have an even number of spiral arms, this galaxy has three.
