Strange occurrence originated from a galaxy 10.7 billion light years away
NASA has reported that a cataclysmic event has taken place within outer space NASA has reported that a cataclysmic event has taken place within outer space, but they are either refusing or are unable to tell the public what it actually is.
The strange occurrence which originated from a galaxy 10.7 billion light years away was captured NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.NASA said: “completely new type of cataclysmic event”.A NASA spokesman explained: “A mysterious flash of X-rays has been discovered by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory in the deepest X-ray image ever obtained.The Express reports: “This source likely comes from some sort of destructive event in space, but may be of a variety that scientists have never seen before.”Report co-author Kevin Schawinski, of ETH Zurich in Switzerland, said: “We may have observed a completely new type of cataclysmic event.“Whatever it is, a lot more observations are needed to work out what we’re seeing.”The southern tip of Italy is visible in this image taken by the Expedition 49 crew aboard the International Space Station.

Two of the three main possibilities to explain the X-ray source invoke gamma-ray burst (GRB) events.GRBs are jetted explosions triggered either by the collapse of a massive star or by the merger of a neutron star with another neutron star or a black hole.If the jet is pointing towards the Earth, a burst of gamma rays is detected.As the jet expands, it loses energy and produces weaker, more isotropic radiation at X-ray and other wavelengths.Possible explanations for the CDF-S X-ray source, according to the researchers, are a GRB that is not pointed toward Earth, or a GRB that lies beyond the small galaxy.A third possibility is that a medium-sized black hole swallowed a white dwarf star.Co-author Ezequiel Treister, also of the Pontifical Catholic University, said: “None of these ideas fits the data perfectly.“But then again, we’ve rarely if ever seen any of the proposed possibilities in actual data, so we don’t understand them well at all.
”These stunning images from the Hubble Space Telescope are taken from the April 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine.Astromoners have discovered a galaxy that formed just 400 million years after the Big Bang explosion, the most distant galaxy found to date Under the Wing The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), one of the Milky Way’s closest neighbors, appears as a Technicolor swirl in this composite image Pillars of Creation: images of the “Pillars of Creation” are among the most recognizable of the thousands the Hubble Space Telescope has created The Hubble Space Telescope revisited the subject of one of its most iconic images: the Eagle Nebula’s “Pillars of Creation”.
