Galaxies Explode!

Friday has arrived and I thought rather then end the week with something on the edifying side I would instead provide you all with some pretty pictures. NASA released (yesterday) some pictures of galaxies colliding to celebrate the 18th birthday of the Hubble telescope. The picture to the left is of "Arp 148 is nicknamed Mayall's object and is located in the constellation of Ursa Major, the Great Bear, approximately 500 million light-years away" (from the Hubblesite).

Want to look at some resources with those pictures? Why not check out the Astronomy and Space library guide.
