The Hubble Telescope is sort of like our eye in the sky (except for the fact that is a telescope and not an eye and is in space). It's used to capture sharp images of the cosmos, which are then analyzed and scrutinized. It looks like the Hubble has managed to snap a shot of a previously undiscovered galaxy. Now, that normally wouldn't be big news, but there's a bit of a complication... As far as we know, this galaxy shouldn't exist. At all. io9 And, if anyone is interested in getting a picture of the improbable galaxy up on their refrigerator... Warning: Spoilers inside! Now, scientists have proposed something of a hypothesis to explain this galaxy's existence: it has a companion dwarf galaxy (scientists are evidently unaware that the polite term is "little person galaxy"), and the gravitational interactions between the two could have had a tremendous influence on its development. It's far too early to say for sure, but it's one possibility. You know, this is what you just have to love about space. Every time we think we're just starting to get a handle on things, it throws us a curve ball. Who knows what we'll find next - another strange galaxy, or a glimpse into the gaping maw of Nyarlathotep, perhaps. Damn, Space - you're incomprehensibly vast and still shrouded in mystery!
