ngc922 nasa collisional ring galaxy

Why does this galaxy have so many big black holes? No one is sure. What is sure is that NGC 922 is a ring galaxy created by the collision of a large and small galaxy about 300 million years ago. Like a rock thrown into a pond, the ancient collision sent ripples of high density gas out from the impact point near the center that partly condensed into stars. Pictured above is NGC 922 with its beautifully complex ring along the left side, as imaged recently by the Hubble Space Telescope. Observations of NGC 922 with the Chandra X-ray Observatory, however, show several glowing X-ray knots that are likely large black holes. The high number of massive black holes was somewhat surprising as the gas composition in NGC 922 -- rich in heavy elements -- should have discouraged almost anything so massive from forming. Research is sure to continue. NGC 922 spans about 75,000 light years, lies about 150 million light years away, and can be seen with a small telescope toward the constellation of the furnace (Fornax).

gay marriage demo paris

People demonstrate for the legalisation of gay marriage and parenting in Paris, France. Demonstrations have shown a deep division in French society over the marriage equality bill expected to be passed in early 2013. The bill would not only legalize same-sex marriage but would also allow gay couples to adopt, which is seen as the most controversial issue. French President Francois Hollande, who has supported the legislation, is facing criticism from anti-gay and religious groups, while gay rights groups have warned of inadequacies within the bill.
