NASA spots mysterious galactic “jellyfish” in space

Jellyfish have been on Earth for about 500 million years, making them the longest surviving creature on the planet. But now NASA has a “jellyfish” in space.

The government’s space agency said a “jellyfish” -like galaxy, called ESO 137-001, with a tail made up of long gas that stretches 260,000 light-years across space “swims” into the space agency’s forthcoming James Webb Telescope.

“Blue bands of young stars dare from the galaxy’s slice as cosmic tentacles,” NASA says in the statement. “However, if you look at the galaxy in X-ray light, you will find a giant tail of hot gas flow behind the galaxy. After its launch, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will study ESO 1

37-001 to learn how the gas is removed from the galaxy and why stars form in the gaseous tail. ”

James Webb Telescope is slated for launch in 2021. The” jellyfish “was first observed by the Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X -ray Observatory 2014.

ESO 137-001 is not exactly near the Earth, despite being similar to the Melky Way galaxy. It is approximately 220 million light-years away from our planet and is part of the Triangulum Australia’s constellation and is part of a galaxy cluster called Abell 3627.

In addition to the electric blue-jet press striping streaks seen from ESO 137-001, a giant gas flow can be seen which extends towards the bottom of the frame, only visible in the X-ray part of the spectrum.

Galaxy clusters are surrounded by hot gases that eventually form stars. But how the stars form in the tail and the time it takes for it to happen is still puzzling for researchers.

“Both gas and dust are removed, but how much and what happens to the stripped material and the galaxy itself is still open issues,” said Stacey Alberts of the University of Arizona, a co-researcher on the project, in the statement.

“We find it difficult to remove a molecular cloud that is already forming stars because it should be tightly bound to the galaxy by gravity,” Alberts added. “That means we are either wrong or this gas took off and heated, but then allowed to cool again so that it could condense and form stars. Explaining these two scenarios is one of the things we want to come up with. “
