NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope combined their efforts to produce a new look at a pair of galaxies called Arp 142, but more adorably known as "the Penguin and the Egg." The penguin (formal name NGC 2336) likely started off as a spiral galaxy that was distorted by the ...
By combining data from Hubble and the Spitzer space telescope, Salmon and his colleagues attempted to “unsmear” the galaxy to learn more about it. A preliminary assessment suggests that it's pretty small, weighing in at around 3 billion solar masses—about 1/100th the size of our Milky Way galaxy, ...
