Hubble's 20th anniversary image shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks. It seems unimaginable that things like this exists. It looks so solid, so imposing! It looks unreal! 20Th Anniversaries, Happy Birthday, Hubble Image, Hubble Spaces Telescope, Cosmo, Hubble Telescope, Advent Calendar, Photo, Carina Nebulas
This craggy fantasy mountaintop enshrouded by wispy clouds looks like a bizarre landscape from Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" or a Dr. Seuss book, depending on your imagination. The NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars
