Hubble telescope spots a ‘Space Triangle’ galaxy crash spawning new stars

A head-on collision between galaxies has created a vast, cosmic triangle in deep space glittering with star formation in a new image captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

The new photo, which NASA released Tuesday (Feb. 22), shows a pair of colliding galaxies known as called Arp 143 arranged in a what scientists described as a “space triangle,” where they are spawning a wave of star formation by sharing gas and dust.
