Chandra Observatory

Astronomers have discovered the densest galaxy ever seen, and at 54 million light years away, it’s in our galactic neighborhood. Using the combined imaging capabilities of ground-based observatories with the high-flying Hubble Space Telescope and its cousin, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the ultra-compact dwarf galaxy known as M60-UCD1 turns out to be 15,000 times denser...

For the first time astronomers have been able to peer into the heart of a galaxy 60 million light years  from Earth and observe, via x-rays, the remnants of a titanic collision between a long dead dwarf galaxy and much larger galaxy. Astronomers have seen many examples across the universe of galactic collisions but now...
