NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured an image of a bright object in the constellation Serpens, giving Earthlings a ‘moment of the future’.
James Webb, the world’s most powerful space telescope developed and operated by NASA, has provided an unprecedentedly sharp view of Arp 220, a merger of a pair of galaxies 250 million light years from us.
according to the sheet Space, Arp 220 currently has a galaxy-like spiral containing Earth’s Milky Way (the Milky Way), has swirling tails on its periphery, which began a melee dance 700 million years ago and could last much longer. .

When the Arp 220 galaxies began merging, the abundance of gas and dust triggered intense star formation, much of it concentrated in their dusty centers.
“The amount of gas in this small region is equal to all the gas in the entire Milky Way” – Description of Jɑmes Webb’s management team.
More than 200 star clusters have been clustered in this region just 5,000 light-years away, shining the central ring of star formation, emitting a six-pointed star-like halo with a sharp band of light across each wing. .
However, this massive star-forming process suddenly stopped around 100 million years ago, sending the galaxy into a post-explosion phase.
Ąrp 220 was already over three decades old by NASA, first detected in 2022 and then observed by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.
however with “God’s Eyes” by James Webb, this was seen so clearly for the first time.
It is also a window of time allowing Earthlings to consider their future. Milky Way, a “monster” in the galactic world, will experience galactic mergers over the next 2 billion years and the next 4-5 billion years. The first time with a dwarf galaxy but the next time with a “monster” worthy – Ąndromeda, ie.
The merger between the two giant galaxies, the Milky Way – Angels will last about 10 billion years, which will certainly contribute to the birth of many new stars. But there is a possibility of an Earth apocalypse, as researchers predict the impact could wipe our planet off the horizon. “living area” of the solar system.
