This incredible new image from NASA is being dubbed the “Hand of God”. My vote goes to the “Hand of Dr. Manhattan” but whomever’s hand it is, they deserve a high five! What a stunning image! 
The cosmic “hand” depicts a pulsar wind nebula, produced by the dense remnant of a star that exploded in a supernova. What’s left behind is a pulsar, called PSR B1509-58 (B1509 for short), which spins around a mind-boggling 7 times per second blowing a wind of particles into material ejected during the star’s death. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, glimpsed high-energy X-rays, shown in blue in the photo while NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory imaged the green and red parts previously, using lower-energy X-rays.
