      Space. The final frontier.

      The Butterfly Nebula (NGC 6302) is a bipolar planetary nebula in constellation Scorpius. Its structure is among most complex. The dainty looking celestial insect wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas released by a dying star heated to over 36,000 deg F, tearing across space at over 600,000 MPH—fast enough to travel from Earth to the Moon in 24 minutes!

    Physicists say we are made of stardust. 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. We are man, we are thought, we are story. We are all star stuff.

    The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell 69) is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae. The spectrum of NGC 6302 shows that its central star is one of the hottest stars in the galaxy, with a surface temperature in excess of 200,000 K, implying that the star from which it formed must have been very large.

    The universe beyond our atmosphere is a most amazing and beautiful thing. It is intriguing and interesting. We should study astronomy. We should study the stars and everything out there. Study the conditions of outer space and all
