NASA’s Hubble captured “Ghost Light” from ceased galaxies

NASA’s Hubble telescope has captured a faint and ghostly glow of stars that were once emitted from galaxies billions of years ago. Since the glow is faint, NASA’s astronomers arrived at the conclusion that these galaxies were ripped apart gravitationally billions of years ago. They also concluded that six galaxies imploded inside a cluster of galaxies stretching over time frame of six billion years.

According to the scientists, the chaos occurred inside a vast collection of nearly 500 galaxies four billion light-years away. This large group of galaxies was nicknamed as ‘Pandora’s Cluster’.
