NASA Scientists discovered a terrifying image that aimed at a galaxy that was 17,000 light years away. It started the speculation that the Creator of Universe was supposedly caught on film.
The Space Agency’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array or The NuSTAR was directed towards a pulsar called PSR B1509-58 at an astonishing distance from earth. What was sent back was a vision of an outstretched hand which has become known as the iconic Hand of God.
Scientists believe that the hand is a relic of a star which went supernova and ejected an enormous cloud of material which left pulsar PSR B1509-58 in its wake. When the same cloud was viewed through high energy X-rays, it showed up as a green, red and blue hand, which is about 175 light years across.
NuSTAR telescope principal investigator Fiona Harrison has said that NuSTAR’s unique viewpoint, in seeing the highest energy X-rays, is showing us well-studied objects and regions in a whole new light. She also added that the new image depicts a pulsar wind nebula, produced by the dense remnant of a star that exploded in a supernova.
What was left behind from all this was a pulsar by the name of PSR B1509-58 which can spin around seven times per second and blow a wind of particles into material that was ejected
during the star’s death throes.
These particles produce an X-ray glow in the shape of a hand when they interact with nearby magnetic fields. Scientists though, are not sure whether the ejected material creates the shape of a hand iself, or whether its interaction with the pulsar’s particles made it appear that way.
Scientists have gathered a few things from all this being that the NuSTAR hand looks more like a fist which has given them some clues and the red cloud that appeared at the fingertips is its structure called RCW 89. However, some believers that reside on religious websites are not interested in their views.
