October 30, 2008--The Hubble Space Telescope is back in business and mission scientists said it scored a ''perfect ten'' in performance and beauty when it imaged the galaxy pair Arp 147.

The ''one'' galaxy on the left, viewed nearly edge-on to our line of sight, is relatively undisturbed. The ''zero'' galaxy on the right exhibits a clumpy, blue ring of intense star formation that was created after the galaxy on the left passed through it.
