This month we saw the first images from the James Webb Telescope, including Detailed image of the Carina Nebula. This nebula is located in the Milky Way.

NGC 3372 is home to massive stars and variable nebulae. The most unusual star in the Carina Nebula is Eta Carinae. This star was one of the brightest stars in the sky in the 19th century, but is now much darker. The entire Carina Nebula is 300 light-years across and 7,500 light-years from Earth.

Too big for photography
The Webb Telescope failed to image the entire nebula, and there is a logical explanation for that: the nebula is huge. For example, the object is four times larger than the famous Orion Nebula. This is why the Webb Telescope placed tiny details of the nebula on the delicate plate.

The Hubble telescope also zooms in so far that it can see the entire nebula. So in this week’s space image, we’re seeing a special detail in the Carina Nebula, which are those mysterious mountains. The hydrogen gas and dust plumes are three light-years high. Stars are born in these gas columns and are thus cosmic nurseries. We can already see the light of these young stars near the tops of the mountains. These stars give off more and more energy, and therefore these gas columns will be destroyed from the inside in the future.

The US space agency released this image in 2010 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope.

The birth of our sun
Our Sun was once born in a gas cloud as dense as the gas column in the Carina Nebula. It is difficult to determine exactly where the Sun was born. a period The M67 star cluster has been designated as a nursery of the SunBut this hypothesis then stole.

Over the past few decades, space telescopes and satellites have captured beautiful images of nebulae, galaxies, stellar nurseries, and planets. Every weekend we remove one or more great space photos from our archives. Enjoy all the pictures? check it out on this page.
