Planck Telescope Spots Galaxy Clusters Connected By Cosmic Gas Bridge, Still Unclear Which One Houses Asgard
The European Space Agency's (ESA) Planck Space Telescope has laid it's super-powerful eye in the sky on a never before seen cosmic phenomenon. The above photo is Planck's first image of a pair of galaxy clusters connected by a cloud of superheated gasses that spans a mind-boggling distance of 10 million lightyears. No word yet on if this actually represents the Asgardian Rainbow Bridge of Thor fame, so in the absence of good evidence, we're just going to really, really hope so.Read More
Today, the European Space Agency has released a stunning all-sky image taken by the Planck Space Observatory over the course of about six months. Planck combines the work of two highly sensitive instruments, the High Frequency Instrument and the Low Frequency Instrument, which detect wavelengths between 100 and 857 GHz and between 30 and 70 GHz, respectively, to form a complete picture of visible and invisible light in our cosmos.
The purple band in the center of the image, which represents the main disc of the Milky Way Galaxy, may be the immediate eye-catcher, but it's what's going on at the peripheries that is potentially of more interest: The Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation.Read More
