A glorious God-like image captured by NASA telescopes aimed at a galaxy Six quadrillion miles away has sparked online speculation that the US space agency has discovered Heaven. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array – or NuSTAR – was aimed at a pulsar (or neutron star) called PSR B1509-58 a staggering distance from earth. What they were sent back – from 17,000 light years away – was a spectral vision of an outstretched hand – which has become known as the Hand of God. And the eerie

image is so powerful that many online have speculated NASA had found Heaven itself. The ‘hand’ is believed to be the remnants of the star which went supernova and ejected an enormous cloud of material – leaving pulsar PSR B1509-58 in its wake. The remnant cloud, when viewed via high-energy X-rays, shows up as a green, red and blue hand, a staggering 175 light-years across. NuSTAR telescope principal investigator Fiona Harrison, of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said: “NuSTAR’s unique viewpoint, in seeing the highest-energy X-rays, is showing us well-studied objects and regions in a whole new light.  READ MORE
