The National Aeronautics Space Agency has recently released a glimpse of what the Hand of God might look like. The image has been captured by NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array.

The image captured by a telescope shows a nebula explosion 17,000 light years away. The nebula is powered by a dead, spinning star called PSR B1509-58.

Take a look at these stunning pictures of the space. Prepare to be amazed.


This undated x-ray image from NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, shows a cloud of material resembling a hand that was ejected from a start that exploded. High-energy X-rays are shown in blue, lower-energy X-ray light, previously detected by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, is shown in green and red.


The current conditions of the quiet corona and upper transition region of the Sun are seen in this image taken by the AIA instrument on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory at 171 Angstrom, December 31, 2013.


The flow of material inside and outside a crater called Aelia on the surface of the giant asteroid Vesta is seen in this composite handout image from NASA's Dawn mission provided by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on December 16, 2013. To the naked eye, these structures would not be seen but here, they stand out in blue and red according to NASA.


A composite view of the Crab nebula, an iconic supernova remnant in our Milky Way galaxy, is shown in this image taken by the Herschel Space Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope released on December 13, 2013. The Crab is arguably the single most interesting object, as well as one of the most studied, in all of astronomy. The image is the largest image ever taken with Hubble\'s WFPC2 workhorse camera. The Crab Nebula is one of the most intricately structured and highly dynamical objects ever observed. The new Hubble image of the Crab was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and is the highest resolution image of the entire Crab Nebula ever made.


Comet ISON moves quite close to the sun in this image from ESA/NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory captured at 10:51 am EST on November 28, 2013. This image is a composite, with the sun imaged by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory in the center, and SOHO showing the solar atmosphere, the corona.


This undated image made available by the European Space Agency and NASA on Tuesday, Jan 7, shows galaxies in the Abell 2744 cluster, and blue galaxies behind it, distorted and amplified by gravitational lensing. The long-exposure image taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows some of the intrinsically faintest and youngest galaxies ever detected in visible light.
