The Haunting Beauty of NGC 3190 —A Deadly Supernova Factory
—
This magnificent galaxy inspires us, again, to ask: does advanced life  exist there? The fact that we have no proof of intelligent life  elsewhere in the universe may simply mean that intelligent civilizations  have all too finite lifetimes. NGC 3190 is a spiral galaxy of  unbearable beauty in the constellation Leo. It was discovered by William  Herschel in 1784. In 2002, astronomers uncovered one supernova in March  in the southeastern part and then another team uncovered a second  supernova on the other side two months later -sure destroyers of  vicinity-based life.
The spectacular image below is the “Trio in Leo.” There is actually a  fourth member of this group which not shown- but the group also goes by  another catalogued name of “Hickson 44.” These galaxies are estimated to  be 60 million light years away. The galaxy furthest to the left is an  elliptical galaxy (NGC 3193) and is fairly devoid of detail. The top  center of the image features NGC 3190.

Richard Dawkins looks at this and says, “There is no God!” The creation yawns, and in the blink of an eye, there is no Richard Dawkins.
