A spectacular new image from NASA gives clues about the universe. The photograph shows two galaxies in the early stages of colliding.

The galaxies seem to form a cosmic exclamation point.

The photo was taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA officials say the two galaxies will become one, but the process takes millions of years.
