The Carina Nebula: Home To Streams of Hot Gas, Cool Gas, and More

To find out how violent stars affect their surroundings, astronomers made a 48-frame high-resolution, controlled-color panorama of the center of the largest star forming regions on the cosmos — the Carina Nebula. This image here, taken in 2007, is the most detailed image of the nebula as of the moment.

Cataloged as NGC 3372, the Carina Nebula is home to streams of hot gas, pools of cool gas, knots of dark globules, and pillars of dense dusty interstellar matter.

The cosmos is always a magnificent view and is ever-amazing.
