The Hand of God

Isn't this photo amazing?

The amazing image was taken by NASA's Chandra X-ray observatory, which is orbiting 580km above the Earth.

NASA scientists estimated the moment depicted here actually happened 17,000 years ago.

It has taken since then for the X-rays to reach Earth.

Quite a few people have dubbed it "the hand of God." I don't know what it is, actually -but it's cool, huh?
