NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – The Planck space telescope has made the first conclusive detection of a bridge of hot gas connecting a pair of galaxy clusters across 10 million light-years of intergalactic space.

“Planck is helping to reveal hidden material between galaxy clusters that we couldn’t see clearly before,” said James Bartlett of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, a member of the U.S. Planck science team. Planck is a European Space Agency mission with significant participation from NASA.

Planck has discovered a bridge of hot gas that connects galaxy clusters Abell 399 (lower center) and Abell 401 (top left). The galaxy pair is located about a billion light-years from Earth, and the gas bridge extends approximately 10 million light-years between them.
