The Universe Today : M82

The shape of M82 has being deformed by the gravitational influence of M81 on it over the last few million years.

M82 is 5 times brighter than our own Milky Way galaxy.

This galaxy is interesting in that 11 months ago an object within it began sending out radio signals…… and the object does not resemble anything seen in the universe before.
