Hubble detects protective shield defending a pair of dwarf galaxies

Summary by Ground News
Astronomers predicted the corona's existence several years ago. The corona stretches more than 100,000 light-years from the Magellanic clouds and covers a huge portion of the southern sky. Mapping it required scouring through 30 years of archived data for suitable measurements.

Orbiting one another as they are pulled in toward our home galaxy, they have begun to unravel, leaving behind trails of gaseous debris. And yet—to the puzzlement of astronomers—these dwarf galaxies remain intact, with ongoing vigorous star formation.
