From beginning to end, different stages of a star's life appear in this exciting Hubble Space Telescope picture of the environs of galactic emission nebula NGC 3603. For the beginning, eye-catching "pillars" of glowing hydrogen at the right signal newborn stars emerging from their dense, gaseous, nurseries. Less noticeable, dark clouds or "Bok globules" at the top right corner are likely part of a still earlier stage, prior to their collapse to form stars. At picture center lies a cluster of…

Hubble Snapshot Captures Life Cycle of Stars - giant galactic nebula NGC 3603

This mosaic image of Andromeda spiral galaxy -- showing explosive stars in its interior and cooler, dusty stars forming in its many rings --  combines observations from the Herschel Space Observatory taken in infrared light  (the orange hues), and the XMM-Newton telescope captured in X-rays (the blues). Andromeda is our nearest large neighbor -- located about 2.5 million light-years away and holds nearly trillion stars. Our Milky Way galaxy contains about 200 - 400 billion stars.

X-rays From A Young Supernova Remnant | NASA. In 1957 a supernova was discovered in M83, a spiral galaxy about 15 mly from Earth. Astronomers have used NASA's Chandra to make the first detection of X-rays emitted by the debris from this explosion. Named SN 1957D because it was the 4th supernova to be discovered in 1957, it is one of only a few located outside of the Milky Way that is delectable, in both radio & optical wavelengths, decades after its explosion was observed.

X-rays From A Young Supernova Remnant

More than fifty years ago, a supernova was discovered in a spiral galaxy about 15 million light years from Earth. Astronomers have used NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to make the first detection of X-rays emitted by the debris from this explosion.

My God is THE artist.and even if this is photoshopped, my previous statement still stands, haha.

Nebula

The 'eye' at the center of the galaxy is actually a monstrous black hole surrounded by a ring of stars. The galaxy, called NGC 1097 and located 50 million light-years away, is spiral-shaped like our Milky Way, with long, spindly arms of stars.

The Wizard Nebula!

Reflection Nebula Messier 78 captured using the Wide Field Imager camera on the MPG/ ESO telescope at the La Silla Observatory, Chile.

The Tornado is an unusual radio source near the center of the Milky Way Galaxy showing a number of remarkable filamentary structures influenced by the magnetic field. It is thought to be a supernova remnant, although the evidence is still inconclusive. Another unusual source is a cluster of bright, compact nebulae located in the lower right edge of the Tornado Nebula.
