NASA unveils ‘treasure trove’ of cosmic images


(CNN) — NASA just released cosmic images created with data from numerous sources, including the chandra x-ray observatory, an extremely powerful telescope.

These views of stars, galaxies and planetary nebulas aren’t exactly representative of what is visible to the human eye.

These composite shots include the galaxy messier and 82 and the planetary nebula helix nebula.

In 2000, a neutron star was discovered by high school students who complied data from the chandra x-ray telescope.
