Hubble's detailed image of nearby galaxy

The Triangulum Galaxy, also known as Messier 33 or NGC 598, is a spiral galaxy located at a distance of some 3 million light-years.

The near-perfect distribution of stars within Triangulum has led researchers to believe that the galaxy has somehow avoided any major intergalactic collisions and has remained relatively untouched for aeons. This is the galaxy group the Milky Way belongs to. Its diameter is only 60 thousand light years in comparison with 200 thousand the galaxy Andromeda or 100 thousand the milky Way.

The Hubble Space Telescope is the most significant piece of equipment the U.S. space agency has ever sent to space.

Most notably, Triangulum's star formation is 10 times more intense than in the comparable Hubble panorama of the neighboring Andromeda.

While it is possible to observe the Triangulum Galaxy under excellent dark-sky conditions, the human eye will only see it as a faint, blurry object with an ethereal glow in the Triangulum (the Triangle) constellation.

It's been a whirlwind few months for the Hubble Space Telescope.

Another difference between the Triangulum Galaxy and the two more popular spiral galaxies is that the former does not have a bright bulge in its center.

The ESA said that the galaxy contains a huge amount of gas and dust, giving rise to rapid star formation. New stars form at a rate of approximately one solar mass every two years.

During star formation, the clouds of gas and dust in galaxies are used to fuel growth.

The glowing blue areas show where stars are being born, such as in the nebulas of hot, ionized hydrogen gas like star-forming region NGC 604 in the upper left.

Many other Hubblecast episodes are also available.

Another important feature of Triangulum is the orderly nature of its spiral.

Further research may determine if Triangulum is actually a newer member of the Local Group of galaxies. "Uncovering the Triangulum galaxy's story will provide an important point of reference in understanding how galaxies develop over time, and the diverse paths that shape what we see today". Those shots, totaling a jaw-dropping 665 million pixels, were carefully aligned to create a single image that weighs in at over one and a half gigabytes.
