NASA has revealed a stunning mosaic of fake space images used to train its astronomical algorithms, but within them is a picture of a real cosmic wonder.
The mosaic contains 225 images, 224 of which are fake and designed by artificial intelligence (AI). But someone shows a real interstellar phenomenon captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.
NASA uses a computer algorithm to analyze digital images of the real night sky taken by robotic telescopes to detect stars and galaxies and measure their properties.
But to calibrate these algorithms, it is useful to test them on fake images of pseudo-universes.
“Why do you want to fake the universe? One thing – to better understand our real world,” NASA said. “The distinctive mosaic of fake images is specifically designed to mimic images featured in NASA’s Astronomical Image of the Day (APOD).”
Publish New account On Twitter, there are regular images of fake astronomical images of the day designed by artificial intelligence ranging from dim spots to attractive realistic panoramas.
Creating fake images of cosmic phenomena using artificial intelligence is the subject of a new pre-print research paper led by Michael J. Smith, a PhD student at the University of Hertfordshire.

The technology is based on the point-based generative model of Artificial Intelligence, which can produce high-quality image samples.
But has artificial intelligence deceived you? If you are still searching for the original image, it will be circled in red.
Below the right side of the mosaic is a beautiful picture of the Crab Nebula taken by Hubble.
Nebulae are large clouds of dust and gas that occupy space between stars and serve as nurseries for new stars. They form when a star larger than our Sun begins to die and emits solar winds.
The Crab Nebula, located in the constellation Taurus 6,500 light-years from Earth, is the remnant of a supernova, a powerful stellar explosion. The nebula can be observed with a small telescope, which is best observed in January.
“The Crab Nebula, the result of a supernova seen in 1054 AD, is filled with mysterious filaments.
The nebula, which is about 10 light-years across, was first observed by Chinese astronomers about 1,000 years ago.
In 1731, the English astronomer John Beavis discovered it, and later the French astronomer Charles Messier thought it was Halley’s Comet.
At its center is a pulsar, a neutron star as massive as the Sun, but only about the size of a small city. This pulsar rotates about 30 times per second.
