Scientists aren't sure whether the ejected material actually assumes the shape of a hand, or whether its interaction with the pulsar's particles is just making it appear that way.

"We don't know if the hand shape is an optical illusion," Hongjun An, of McGill University in Montreal, said in a statement. "With NuSTAR, the hand looks more like a fist, which is giving us some clues."

The hand might look like an from the doctor' s
office, but it is actually a cloud of material ejected from
a star that exploded. NASA' s spacecraft has
imaged the structure in Arrays for the first
time, shown in blue. Xyray light previously
detected by Chandra Observatory is
shown in green and red.
