Wide-field image showing the region of WR 25 and Tr16-244. This cluster is embedded within the Carina Nebula, an immense cauldron of gas and dust that lies approximately 7500 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Carina, the Keel.
(Picture: Nasa, ESA, and The Hubble Heritage Team STScI/AURA) The Carina Nebula is a cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other gases around 7,500 light years away from Earth. In this picture the oxygen is blue, hydrogen and nitrogen are green and sulphur red.
~~Star birth in the extreme ~ Hubble's view of the Carina Nebula shows star birth in a new level of detail. The fantasy-like landscape of the nebula is sculpted by the action of outflowing winds and scorching ultraviolet radiation from the monster stars that inhabit this inferno. In the process, these stars are shredding the surrounding material that is the last vestige of the giant cloud from which the stars were born | Hubble~~

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched on April 24, 1990. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, NASA have released this image of chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars. The pillar is also being assaulted from within, as infant stars buried inside it fire off jets of gas that can be seen streaming from towering peaks. This turbulent cosmic pinnacle lies within a tempestuous stellar nursery
Located some 1300 light-years away in the constellation of Carina (The Keel of the ship Argo). It is informally known as the Wishing Well Cluster, as it resembles scattered silver coins which have been dropped into a well, It was the first target to be observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope. (May 1990) The stars that with moderate masses are still shining brightly with blue-white colors, but the more massive ones have already exhausted their supplies of hydrogen becoming red giant stars.
Napoleon: You have written this huge book on the system of the world without once mentioning the author of the universe. ~~ Laplace: Sire, I had no need of that hypothesis. ~ | LATER| Lagrange: Ah, but that is a fine hypothesis. It explains so many things.
