What resemble dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 36,000°F. The gas is tearing across space at more than 600,000mph - fast enough to travel from Earth to the moon in 24 minutes (Photos: NASA and e2v)
New images from the rejuvenated, more powerful Hubble Space Telescope have universally delighted astronomers. Last week, observations from four of its six operating science instruments were released by NASA. They include colorful, multi-wavelength pictures of far-flung galaxies, a densely-packed star cluster, an eerie ‘pillar of creation’, and a ‘butterfly’ nebula.
