Hubblecast 72: Clues to a cosmic crime

The ESA astronomy podcast, bringing you the latest from the Hubble Space Telescope

4 March 2014

The newest episode of the Hubblecast showcases striking new observations of a spiral galaxy moving through the heart of a galaxy cluster named Abell 3627. This cluster is violently ripping the spiral’s entrails out into space, leaving bright blue streaks as telltale clues to this cosmic crime.
