More Images of Hydra A

Hydra A galaxy cluster
This image shows a radio (green and maroon) overlay of the Chandra X-ray (pink, and blue) image of Hydra A. Large magnetized bubbles of radio-emitting high-energy particles expanding from the center of the cluster have pushed through the 40 million degree X-ray emitting gas. As the largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe, galaxy clusters provide crucial clues for understanding the origin and fate of the universe. Hydra A is 840 million light years from Earth.
