NASA Photographs the Hand of God

NASA Photographs Space Hand

NASA has released new photos of a stellar formation that resembles a human hand reaching out into space.

The photos, taken at NASA’s Chandra Observatory, captured the hand like image while photographing an X-ray nebula. The image shows formations resembling the skeletal bones of a human hand and forearm reaching for firey red and orange objects in space.

NASA scientists say the formation is the result of a young, powerful pulsar, created by a collapsing star, which is expelling gasses and energy that’s interacting with the objects around it.

From this CNN story:

“The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand,” NASA says. The finger-like structures are apparently caused by “energizing knots of material in a neighboring gas cloud,” NASA says.

    Maybe this is the meaning of the hadith… AT THAT TIME [OF THE APPEARANCE OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] A HAND WILL BE SEEN REVEALING ITSELF FROM THE SKY… (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 51)… Asma bint Umays says: THE PORTENT OF THAT DAY [THE COMING OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A HAND EXTENDING FROM THE SKY AND PEOPLE TURNING TO LOOK AT IT. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 69)
