“Nasa’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured an image of a galaxy being pulled apart in deep space”

The image shows a galaxy trailing stars and dust as it moved through a cluster of galaxies, known as the Norma Cluster, in a region of space around 200 million light years from Earth.

The picture was taken in 2009 of the Great Attractor, a region around 200 million light years away from Earth.

It takes scientists years to study the hugely complex images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, which has been snapping pictures of space since it was launched in 1990.

The term “stretching the heavens” appears at least 17 times in the Bible. According to the Scriptures, the heavens can be “torn,” “worn out” like a garment, “shaken,” “burnt up,” “split apart” like a scroll, and “rolled up” like a mantle or a scroll.

“Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down,
That the mountains might quake at Your presence–” Isaiah 64:1
