pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies
This image, a pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies called Arp 147, demonstrated that the camera is working exactly as it was before going offline.
The Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, designed and built by JPL, is back in the image business. It has been a workhorse on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope since 1993.
