‘Hand of God’ Discovered 17,000 Light Years Away By NASA Scientists
The hand of God is a beautiful image that will remain remembered in the circles of all of those who love astronomy. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array has captivated the attention of the whole world after revealing and an x-ray image of a hand 17.000 light years away from Earth.
Scientists explained that they were aiming the NuSTAR at a pulsar, or neutron star called PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short when they captured the phenomenon. NuSTAR was launched into space on a mission to explore extreme or high-energy objects in our galaxy such as black holes and dead and exploded stars. Fiona Harrison of the California Institute of Technology is the telescope’s principal investigator. “NuSTAR’s unique viewpoint, in seeing the highest-energy X-rays, is showing us well-studied objects and regions in a whole new light.”
To explain this phenomenon, some scientists claim that this may actually be a pareidolia.In an article for Live Science, Kim Ann Zimmermann states that pareidolia is the “psychological phenomenon that causes some people to see or hear a vague or random image or sound as something significant.” This isn’t the first example of pareidolia in references to the appearance of religious imagery, in fact, there are many examples that have made their way into the mainstream media.
In 2004 Florida’s Diane Duyser sold a decade-old grilled cheese sandwich on eBay for $28,000 after claiming that it bore the image of the Virgin Mary. The sale received over 1.7 million hits while it was up on the popular auction site. A coffee house called Java Café in Belmont, Tenn. Rose to fame when word spread that they had a cinnamon bun that resembled Mother Teresa. Known as the ‘Nun Bun,’ The bun was the cause of a great deal of debate until one Christmas Eve when it was stolen. A $5000 no questions asked reward is still on the table for its return.
What do you think, in the end, is this creation of God or the human’s imagination?
