I Love Hubble!

Two new images of cosmic phenomena have been released to celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope's 15th birthday.

The image below is of the Whirlpool Galaxy, also known as the spiral galaxy M51. It shows the galaxy's classic features, including its curving arms where newborn stars reside, and its yellowish core, which is home to older stars.

I am fascinated by all things astronomy. If I had better higher math skills, I might have been an astronomer...
