Sprinklr : Sometimes, Hubble’s data is best visualized through art. 🎨 On #InternationalArtistsDay, explore illustrations of Hubble discoveries from artists and scientists working together!

The Art of Hubble:

Sprinklr : Happy #HubbleFriday! This new image shows two interacting galaxies pulling on one another, creating a waterfall of stars. 🌠

The galaxies, NGC 2799 and NGC 2798, might merge or create a unique formation over the next several hundred million years:

Sprinklr : #HubbleFriday This Hubble image shows a special type of star-forming nursery, known as Free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globules (or frEGGs for short).

FrEGGS are dark, compact globules of dust and gas, some of which create low-mass stars:
