The Queen of Rock died yesterday at the age of 83. She has been fighting a serious illness for years.
“Simply the best. Music legend Tina Turner she shone onstage and in millions of hearts as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her legacy will live forever among the stars.” That’s how she fired NASA at the rocker, who passed away yesterday at the age of 83.
The emotional text from the space agency was accompanied in an Instagram post by a spectacular photograph of a star cluster captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
“The sparkles are reminiscent of the shiny and sequined dresses that Tina Turner looked on stage,” NASA wrote. And he explained the image: “The largest number of stars is concentrated in the center of the cluster, most of them blue and white. The red and orange stars are further from the center.”
