"It's almost as if someone flipped a switch, morphing the system from a lower-energy state to a higher-energy one" said Benjamin Stappers, an astrophysicist at the University of Manchester, England, who led an international effort to understand this striking tran...
"Conceptually, ATLAST would leverage the technological advances pioneered by the Webb telescope, such as deployable, large segmented-mirror arrays" said Mark Clampin, ATLAST study scientist and Webb's project scientist
"These tidal tails are thin, elongated streams of gas, dust and stars that extend away from a galaxy into space. They occur when galaxies gravitationally interact with one another, and material is sheared from the outer edges of each body and flung out into space in opposite directions, forming two tails. They almost always appear curved, so when they are seen to be relatively straight, as in this image, it is clear that we are viewing the galaxies side-on."
