The photo, published by NASA on its website and social media channels, shows two yellow-hued orbs of lights just a little below the middle. The arc of light is reportedly a galaxy whose shape has been distorted and stretched as a result of passing a massive gravity source.

It is known that the resolution of a telescope large enough to study the smallest particles located in space, and especially the field of star formation. Over time, these nurseries become unstable, succumbing to gravitational forces until they become the seeds that give birth to new stars.

NASA says, 'Stars are born within giant clouds of gas. How many of those stars have planets in orbit, and how many of those planets are like Earth? It's important to study stellar formation within different galaxies to gain a richer context, which is why Hubble had its gaze fixed on a galaxy cluster.

Recently, using the data collected by Hubble and Kepler telescope, a team of researchers at the Columbia University found the evidence of the first moon outside the solar system. The device got its name from the famous American astronomer Edwin Hubble.

Thousands march in support of Sri Lanka's new government
On Friday, 118 members of the 225-seat legislature met the speaker and called for the reconvening of parliament. Thousands of Sri Lankans are marching in support of a new government under the country's former strongman.

He is arguably most famous for discovering that the universe is expanding and the rate at which is does so - now coined the Hubble constant.

The Hubble, behind iconic images such as Pillars of Creation has watched the skies for 28 years, having launched in 1990.

Far away galaxies smiling back at Hubble.

Hubble's primary mirror is 2.4 meters (7 feet, 10.5 inches) across and in total is 13.3 meters (43.5 feet) long - the length of a large school bus.
