Hubble Telescope captures most detailed image ever of nearby galaxy

It's our neighbor in a collection of dozens of galaxies called the Local Group, and was captured in unprecedented detail in image consisting of 54 Hubble fields of view stitched together, revealing almost 25 million individually resolved stars.

As the second-largest image ever released by Hubble, it encompasses the central region of the galaxy and its inner spiral arms.

The Hubble Space Telescope's mind-blowing new image of the Triangulum Galaxy is nearly as enormous as the galaxy itself.

This wide-field view shows the Triangulum Galaxy as seen from the ground. As noted on the website of the Observatory, the galaxy is the third largest object of the Local group and the most distant that can be seen with the naked eye. The Triangulum galaxy is about 60,000 light-years across, which is much smaller than the Andromeda Galaxy that measures 200,000 light-years in diameter. Striking areas of star birth glow bright blue throughout the galaxy, particularly in lovely nebulas of hot, ionized hydrogen gas like star-forming region NGC 604 in the upper left.

Another difference between the Triangulum Galaxy and the two more popular spiral galaxies is that the former does not have a bright bulge in its center. New stars form at a rate of approximately one solar mass every two years. Those shots, totaling a jaw-dropping 665 million pixels, were carefully aligned to create a single image that weighs in at over one and a half gigabytes.

In the past, star-formation histories in the Local Group have been measured one galaxy at a time, often using different analysis techniques.

Toyota recalls 1.3 million vehicles in the US
Japanese manufacturer Takata's front passenger air bag inflators killed at least 23 people worldwide and injured hundreds more. Both automakers have urged some drivers of older vehicles not to drive them until the inflators are replaced.

The Andromeda Galaxy was mapped by Hubble in 2015, creating the sharpest and largest image of this galaxy and the largest Hubble image ever.

Still, Messier 33 remains an important find, its abundance of gas clouds drawing astronomers to conduct this detailed analysis.

Which is freakish, because newborn stars devour dust and gas, leaving less fuel for new celestial bodies to emerge. Hubble's image shows two of the four brightest of these regions in the galaxy: NGC 595 and NGC 604.

Many other Hubblecast episodes are also available.

Usually when astronomers talk about our neighbouring galaxy, they're talking about Andromeda, which is a cozy 2.5 million light-years away.
