NASA pays special tribute to football legend Pele after his death
The US space agency posted a unique picture of Galaxy with caption, "We mark the passing of the legendary Pele, known to many as the king of the "beautiful game." This image of a spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor shows the colours of Brazil."
Pele has earned fame and name across the world, and a special tribute from NASA just proves that he was among the most famous football legends.
The space agency described the image as "an image of a spiral galaxy with spiral arms dotted with blue stars of varying intensity."
"The core of the galaxy is brightest, and the stars appear yellow-green. The image was taken by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer satellite, or GALEX," it added.
3 times World Cup champion Pele died on Thursday at an age of 82. His death came after a long battle with cancer, which had caused multiple organ failures. He was admitted to Sao Paulo Hospital since last couple of days.
