There are many satellites in space that record images for research and the photos continue to come from these satellites. Let’s take a look at the wonderful space photographs of this week.
From the polar regions of the moon to the most symmetrical galaxy, from the polar region of Mars to celestial bodies larger than the Sun, we have compiled the best images of this week for space enthusiasts. Here are the most noticeable space visuals this week.
1. NGC 604
This dreamy photograph combines the visible light from the Hubble Space Telescope and the high-frequency light from the Chandra X-ray Observatory to show activity in highly active star formation zones called NGC 604.
2. Cygnus OB2
In this image, Cygnus OB2, which contains stars that are many times larger than the Sun. The Sun and other large stars like it can survive for about 10 billion years, but their life decreases as the stars grow. These stars burn brightly, removing gases and dust at high speed and causing a strong explosion that shines in X-ray emissions. NASA’s Chandra telescope also captured this image for us.
3. Craters of the Moon
Not all craters of the Moon are equal. The coldest, darkest and most extreme environments are located in the south pole of our satellite. NASA, until 2024 under the Artemis program will examine this region. -233 degrees Celsius cold water in this region will be sought.
4. Launch of Soyuz
50 years after Apollo 11, a new team was formed for the International Space Station. The astronauts were sent into space on the capsule on the Soyuz rocket launched from Kazakhstan and arrived at the International Space Station only 6 hours later.
5. Omega Centauri
This light blue object may look like a single star, but in fact, it is Omega Centauri, a dense formation of 10 million stars. Such objects are called spherical clusters and are held together by gravity. They are made up of not only very old stars but also lost almost all their gases and dust. If you look carefully at the image you can see the stars one by one. Omega Centauri is about 16,000 light-years from Earth.
6. NGC 2985
This photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows NGC 2985, one of the most proportional and symmetrical spiral galaxies in space. NGC 2985 appears to be slowly turning in the constellation of Ursa Major and 70 million light-years away from Earth in the silence of space.
7. The North Pole of Mars
The northern arctic region of Mars is usually similar to the North Pole of our planet. The undulating parts in the photograph of the area where soft glaciers are located are the deep sand dunes in the pits of Mars, and the glaciers beneath the surface create this effect on the surface.
