Messier 99 is a spiral galaxy located in the constellation Braid Berenice. The object, also known as NGC 4254, was captured in a very amazing image that scientists captured using it MUSE from the Very Large Telescope in Chile.
Messier 99 is a spiral galaxy in which the universe is abundant. However, this particular one is almost perfect. It is an excellent example of this type of object with clearly formed spiral arms. The photo taken with MUSE is not only very amazing, but also has scientific value.

The galaxy has been captured At many wavelengths. This allows scientists to better understand star formation and evolution processes. Messier 99 is also valuable in terms of galactic events. One arm indicates a major collision with another object of this type in the past.
The galaxy NGC 4254 is located around 50 million light years From Milky Way. The image was taken as part of the PHANGS project (High Angular Resolution Physics in the Near Galactic).
At the same time, we invite you to listen to the latest episode of the podcast from a technical point of view. This time we talked to the creator of the ANS encoding … which is used by almost the whole world today. Despite developing a great solution, he hasn’t seen a penny, and tech giants – from Google to Microsoft – are trying to patent them, without sharing the profits with the world. How did this happen and what exactly does ANS allow? You can find the answers to this below:
