Caption

Peculiar galaxy NGC 3256, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image. This galaxy is the result of a past galactic merger, which created its distorted appearance. It is an ideal target to investigate starbursts that have been triggered by galaxy mergers. NGC 3256 is 100 million light years from Earth, in the constellation of Vela. This optical image was obtained with the HST's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). Image published in 2018.
