The Hand Of God



What looks like an X-ray of a hand is actually the remains of a star that has exploded 17,000 light-years away. The astronomers who captured this image with a NASA space telescope are calling it the "Hand of God."

What the image shows is a pulsar wind nebula, a dying star and the cloud of materials left over from the star after it exploded. The particles are interacting with nearby magnetic fields, causing the particles to glow in the image. It's unclear if the nebula looks like a hand because of the way the particles are interacting with the magnetic fields, or if the particles are actually shaped like a hand.

If God has got any sense God is waving goodbye to us.
