This spiral galaxy, M101, is like our Milky Way, but about 70 percent bigger. It is located about 21 million light years from Earth. X-rays from Chandra reveal the hottest and most energetic areas due to exploded stars, superheated gas and material falling toward black holes. Infrared data from Spitzer shows dusty lanes in the galaxy where stars are forming, while optical data traces the light from stars.

This image is part of a "quartet of galaxies" collaboration of professional and amateur astronomers that combines optical data from amateur telescopes with data from the archives of our missions.

"I see a red door and I want to paint it black"
You know how washing detergents can make your whites whiter than white? Well, now NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has made a black that’s blacker than black. Dubbed super-black, the material is fashioned out of carbon nanotubes and absorbs more than 99% of ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and far-infrared light, making it the perfect lining for telescopes…

Awesome!
 
Here's what happens when galaxies collide - as seen by our Chandra X-Ray Observatory:

M51 is a spiral galaxy, about 30 million light years away, that is in the process of merging with a smaller galaxy seen to its upper left.
