NASA, as we know, constantly surveys the space in search of new celestials. However, it is pretty rare that they find something that refers to a space movie. For instance, scientists have never found something like the “monolith” that we saw in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Nonetheless, the space organization recently reported that they have found a new galaxy that has the shape of a TIE Fighter spacecraft that exists in the Star Wars universe.
The TXS 0128+554 (TXS 0128 for short) is a newfound cosmic system found 500 million light-years from us. It lives in the “Cassiopeia” group of stars secured by the power of a supermassive dark opening. This dark gap is gigantic and I mean an entire multiple times enormous than our own special Sun, as indicated by NASA.
Notwithstanding, the entire cosmic system, when seen from a good ways, really has a shape that generally looks like a TIE Fighter shuttle from Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode IV) which delivered path in 1977.
A Galaxy of the Starfighters?
Presently, the TIE Fighter stream has an exceptional tie like shape, with a hover in the center and two vertical-level wings on each side. In the Star Wars universe, the TIE is an abbreviation for Twin Iron Engine. In any case, chief George Lucas included the name since he felt that the shuttle essentially had a structure like ties.
So as of late, NASA researcher and a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Purdue University in Indiana, Matthew Lister distributed a paper depicting the most recent discoveries of a removed world that NASA’s Fermi Gamma-beam Space Telescope followed very nearly five years prior. This was the TXS 0128 that I referenced before.
Presently, since the disclosure, researchers have been utilizing exceptional instruments like Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) and NASA’s Chandra X-beam Observatory to additionally examine the cosmic system. What’s more, as of late they had the option to catch a picture (underneath) of the TXS 0128 at 15.4 gigahertz from the Chandra X-beam Observatory.

The colors in the galaxy, which include purple, red, and yellow, depicts the intensity of the radio signals. It goes from low to high and changes its color from purple to yellow.
So now, that you have seen the shape of the galaxy, take a look at the TIE Fighter jet from Star Wars: A New Hope.
“The first time I saw the results, I immediately thought it looked like Darth Vader’s TIE fighter spacecraft from ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.’ That was a fun surprise, but its appearance at different radio frequencies also helped us learn more about how active galaxies can change dramatically on decade time scales.”, said Matthew Lister.
