Beautiful galaxy for the first time considered in detail.

In the constellation URSA major is a spiral galaxy with a jumper NGC 3895, discovered by William Herschel in 1790.

Now that the space telescope “Hubble” has received detailed images of this distant beauty, she reminded astronomers lush milk froth in a mug with latte, writing at NASA.

the orbit Height of Hubble is about 569 km. It rotates with the orbital velocity of 7500 meters per second. Because the observation does not distort the earth’s atmosphere, the resolution is 7-10 times more than a similar telescope located on Earth. This allows the Hubble to obtain clear pictures of such distant objects like NGC 3895.
