THE CARTWHEEL GALAXY: The ring-like shape is caused by a smaller galaxy passing through the larger one-- The Chandra X-ray Observatory data is in purple. The Galaxy Evolution Explorer ultraviolet view is in blue. The Hubble is in visible light, and the Spitzer Space Telescope image infrared is in red. Put them all together, and you have--WOW!
