Giant Gaseous Cavity within Star-Forming Region NGC 3324 This glowing nebula has been carved out by ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from several hot, young stars, located well outside this image in the center of the nebula.
"Fiery Young Stars Wreak Havoc in Stellar Nursery" - The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has imaged a violent stellar nursery called NGC in which stars are born in a first-come-first-served feeding frenzy for survival.
Stellar Tumult Star birth and star death create cosmic havoc in a panorama of the Carina Nebula assembled from multiple Hubble images. Data from a terrestrial telescope contributed colors keyed to elements

Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship.
A hotbed of newly born stars is swaddled in colorful blankets of glowing gas and cradled in an enormous, cold, dark, hydrogen cloud. As the infant stars evaporate the surrounding cloud, they expose dense pockets of gas that may contain developing stars.
