NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way. The feature spans light-years and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy.
A colorful collection of galaxy specimens from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer mission showcases galaxies of several types, from elegant grand design spirals to more patchy flocculent spirals.
