There’s plenty of reasons to envy anyone whose job it is to find cool stuff in space. I mean, they get to stare into the cosmos with fancy, priceless tools, and discover things that humanity has never seen before. That being said, there’s one thing that definitely wouldn’t be so great about finding countless new planets, galaxies, and star formations: coming up with names for them all. A stunning new photo released by NASA shows off a gorgeous galaxy some 400 million light-years away from Earth, but its name is absolutely ridiculous. That fancy blob of orange and blue you see above is officially 2XMM J143450.5+033843.
