NASA's Chandra Observatory photographed "The Hand of God"

Pulsar B1509
A fascinating X-ray image of a "cosmic hand" was recorded by Chandra observatory

Chandra that rotates above the Earth at a height of 500 km, managed to photograph a rotating neutron star - a pulsar - that releases energy during its rotation. Although the pulsar is only 20 km in diameter, which gives birth nebula in space stretches over a distance of 150 light years.

 Pulsar called B1509, is located at a distance of 17,000 light-years from Earth. Golden-reddish portions of the photo represents parts of a neighboring gas cloud, energized by the flow of ions and electrons emitted by the pulsar. With a little imagination, the image can be likened to that of a hand, and astronomers have called a "hand of God", inspired by the "eye of God", another great cosmic image, obtained by European astronomers in February.

About me

    I'm working on a theory for some time in trying to combine science with religion, looking for an answer to the question 
"What is the purpose of life in Creation?  Is it possible for life to be an unintended consequence of our Universe?

Finally due to space,science and exploration throughout the Universe we got everyone to agree with the fact that we are not the only planet with life.  My blog is full of interesting articles about Creation of the Universe with all his laws,  NASA's Missions,  History,   Science,  Physics, Health, Nature, Ancient origins and Culture.
