New forensic technique for estimating time of death by checking

A rainbow of the Universe. If I could do anything, I would study astronomy. The sky has always intrigued me and I would love to learn all I can about it. I would love to be as close as possible to this science. It is a beautiful party of God's creation.

Evaporating Blobs of the Carina Nebula - Credit: ESA/Hubble, NASA The Great Nebula in Carina itself spans about 30 light years, lies about 7,500 light years away, and can be seen with a small telescope toward the constellation of Keel (Carina).

The Carina Nebula (NGC 3324) is a 3-light-year tall pillar of gas and dust surrounding several clusters of stars. Eta Carina & HD 93129A, two of the most massive & luminous stars in the Milky Way, are among them. About 10,000 ly away, it is one of the largest nebulae ever seen (larger & brighter than the Orion nebula) the top is a 3-ly-tall pillar of cool hydrogen being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars.

The Keyhole Nebula (which is also known as the Carina Nebula or NGC 3372) is a glowing cloud of gas, dust, and stars some 8000 light years distant toward the constellation Carina. CN is a site of active star formation, and it contains stars that are ten times as hot and 100 times as massive as the Sun. The entire CN is some 200 lights years across.

NASA 4) Butterfly Nebula (NGC 6302) Located in the constellation Scorpius, the structure of this nebula is one of the most fragile and complex that has ever been studied. The butterfly shape has lead scientists to name it's structure a "bipolar structure."

More than 3,000 stars, radiating like cosmic fireworks, lie near the center of this image. The stellar cluster is known as Westerlund 2. The colorful gas cloud above the star cluster is a hotbed of stellar birth known as Gum 29, located 20,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Carina.
