The picture shows countless galaxies.

National Board of the USA on Aeronautics and space research (NASA) announced another great shot from aboard an orbital telescope “Hubble” (NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope).

This time it depicted a giant cluster of galaxies, appearing under the designation RXC J0032.1+1808. The picture is made in the framework of the program RELICS (Reionization Lensing Cluster Survey) survey of several dozen of the largest clusters of galaxies, reports the Internet-the edition with reference to .

The picture shows countless galaxies. Such gravitationally-bound structures are among the largest in the Universe. The masses of the clusters range from 1013 to 1015 solar masses and sizes in the tens of millions of light years.It is assumed that the data received under the program RELICS, will allow to define the objectives of the study for future space telescope “James Webb” (James Webb Space Telescope). This machine will be the most powerful orbital telescope in history. The launch of the system was repeatedly postponed and he is now scheduled for may 2020. The unit will study objects in the Solar system, the search for exoplanets and possible traces of life in the Universe, the observation of TRANS-Neptunian objects, the study of nearby and distant galaxies, etc.
