X-Ray Telescope captures 'Hand of God' in Space

A latest picture of a deceased start has been taken by Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array of NASA or NuStar. The star is dubbed as the 'Hand of God' as its appearance is similar to an open hand.

NuStar is the foremost telescope that has successfully captured black holes from a far-off distance.

Since June 2012, the NuStar has been found revolving around the earth. Its duty is to collect additional data related to the presence of black holes in our universe. The latest image captured by telescope is an x-ray image.

The recent picture is assisting astronomers in gaining more knowledge regarding pulsars. Pulsars are the leftovers of stars which die.

The 'Hand of God' is also a pulsar which is situated at a distance of 17,000 light-years. It has a diameter of about 12 miles.

The earlier image that was captured of the dead star revealed that the star appears like an extended hand, but according to the latest image the star appears similar to a fist.

One more image of the NuStar has been shown by astronomers. The image depicts the presence of black holes all over the space.

Francesca Civano of Yale University says, "This is a hot topic in astronomy. We want to understand how black holes grew in the past and the degree to which they are obscured".
