HUGE COSMIC 'SUPERBUBBLES' THAT ARE CHURNING UP SPACE SPOTTED IN A DISTANT GALAXY

Huge "superbubbles" stretching thousands of miles across have been spotted in a distant galaxy.

A galaxy known as NGC 3079, located about 67 million light years from Earth, has two "superbubbles" inside of it, Nasa has seen. Theystretch out from different sides of the middle of the galaxy – reaching 4,900 light years and 3,600 light years across.

The bubbles are throwing out light in the form of X-ray, optical and radio emission, which allows Nasa to see them from Earth. The new images show that data as it was spotted by those Nasa researchers: the Chandra X-ray Observatory are shown in purple and optical data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope are shown in orange and blue.

The same data also shows that inside of the galaxy there is something like a huge version of the particle accelerator in the Large Hadron Collider. But the particles being produced are far more energetic than those created on Earth.
