The most important findings and most exciting achievements in the field of science.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has peered into one of the star-forming regions in space, a stellar nursery located in the constellation Gemini.

Astronomers observed how a massive star emerges, bursting cavities and illuminating its cloudy and dusty surroundings.

Cavities explode as if they were a couple of powerful jets, extending to the upper right and lower left of the image. Thus, the light of this star escapes for the most part and reaches to illuminate like a beacon in the middle of its surroundings.

The stars are born in dusty environments And although this dust produces spectacular images, it can prevent astronomers from seeing stars embedded in it.

The Hubble Space Telescope is designed to capture detailed images in both visible and infrared light, which means that young stars hidden in vast star-forming regions like AFGL 5180 can be seen clearly.
