IMG * Space Whirlpool shows an animation of a photo of Galaxy M51 known as the "Whirlpool Galaxy". This animation makes for a very cool optical illusion. It is fitting that I release this video today with NASA announcing the discovery of a new form of life. Astrobiology is going to be a very exciting field now with these latest developments. We'll probably being hearing more and more talk about extraterrestrial life and UFO alien visitors!

Animation narration transcript:
"What this video animation shows is the Whirlpool Galaxy also known as Messier 51a spinning on its central axis.
This galaxy has a smaller companion galaxy called Messier 51b that it interacts with. For the purposes of this video it has been edited out. What came to be known as the Whirlpool Galaxy was discovered in 1774 by the French astronomer Charles Messier and given the name M51. Its spiral nature was not discovered however until 1845 when English astronomer Lord Rosse observed it with a 72 inch reflecting telescope he constructed in Ireland. It is approximately 23 million light-years distance from earth. This means that it takes 23 million years for the light emanating from it to reach our planet. It has a diameter of about 76,000 light years.

Thank you for watching!"
