I HEART HUBBLE: Jet in Carina

NASA: "Jet in Carina: WFC3 UVIS"
I HEART HUBBLE is an ongoing series about everyone’s favourite space telescope. If we can’t go to space ourselves, at least we can browse through NASA’s royalty-free imagery and enjoy the scenery. Ad astra!

“Jet in Carina: WFC3 UVIS”:

A pillar of gas in the Carina Nebula is bathed in the light of hot, massive stars. Radiation and fast winds from the stars sculpt the pillar and cause new star formation within it.
