And I'm not surprised. THAT is freaking odd as hell! WOW! I've never seen anything like that, it appears to be a phenomena never seen before. Thanks for sharing, this will be interesting to see what conclusions are made about this.
None of the world's experts no what the strange spiral structure on the left is.
Haha, well there we go. Explained in the first reply. You could have let the mystery last a bit longer.
A photograph of a weird cosmic spiral in deep space taken by the Hubble Space Telescope is no trick of light ? it's astrophysics in action, scientists say.
The cosmic pinwheel snapshot released this week by the Hubble science team shows "one of the most perfect geometrical forms created in space," Hubble scientists said in a statement. [Hubble's amazing celestial spiral photo.]
The photo shows an unusual pre-planetary nebula called IRAS 23166+1655 as it is forming around the dust-shrouded star LL Pegasi in the constellation Pegasus.
Given the expansion rate of the spiral gas, a new layer must appear about every 800 years, a close match to the time it takes for the two stars to orbit each other.

why is it odd that nobody knows what it is? humans dont know everything infact as far as space and the universe goes we know almost nothing
i wouldnt make guesses as to what it is because we dont even know if the science fictional theories you suggested even truly exist (wormholes, stargates etc etc)
its a phenomenon and completely normal that nobody knows what it is
