Astronomers are calling this stunning image "The Hand of God." Do you see it?
This deep-space structure is about 17,000 light years away. Its unique appearance is the result of particle winds being blown around by the rapidly spinning "corpse" of a star that exploded.
You can see that dead star as a bright white spot in the "palm" of the hand. As it spins, it sends out a particle wind that interacts with the material around it. That glowing interaction is what gets picked up by NASA's NuSTAR telescope
and Chandra X-ray observatory
Is it actually shaped like a hand, or is this just a result of the way the telescopes "see" the X-rays emanating from it? NASA isn't sure, but the NuSTAR (short for: nuclear spectroscopic telescope array) space telescope is helping solve that mystery.
