This magical composite image from Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red) presents an incredible display of the colliding Antennae galaxies. The Antennae galaxies take their name from the long antenna-like “arms” produced by tidal forces generated in the collision. Beginning 100 million years ago, the collision has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas, enriching the intergalactic gas with elements like oxygen, iron, and silicon that will be incorporated into new generations of stars and planets.
