NASA Scientists Photograph ‘The Hand of God’ (Video)

What looks like an X-ray of a hand is actually the remains of a star that exploded 17,000 light-years away. The astronomers who captured this image with a NASA space telescope call this amazing photo, ‘The Hand of God’.

What the image shows is called a pulsar nebula, a dying star and the cloud of materials left over from the star after it exploded. Scientists speculate the nebula looks like a hand because of the way the particles interact with the magnetic fields.

NASA experts also say the star is about 12 miles in diameter and spins at nearly seven times a second. As the star spins, it spews particles ‘upheaved during the star’s violent death.’
