Star Formation in the Tadpole Nebula - What's all of the commotion in the Tadpole nebula? Star formation. Dusty emission in the Tadpole nebula, IC 410, lies about 12,000 light-years away in the northern constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga). The cloud of glowing gas is over 100 light-years across, sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from embedded open star cluster NGC 1893

Making a Spectacle of Star Formation in Orion Looking like a pair of eyeglasses only a rock star would wear, this nebula brings into focus a murky region of star formation. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope exposes the depths of this dusty nebula (M 78) with its infrared vision, showing stellar infants that are lost behind dark clouds when viewed in visible light.

Spitzer views Nebula in infrared The nebula Messier 78 (also known as M 78 or NGC is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780 and included.

This galaxy, NGC 4565, is a disk galaxy viewed at nearly an edge-on angle. Galaxies like these are of particular interest for their links to star formation and the speeds at which galaxies rotate.

ESA’s Herschel space observatory sees the Orion A star-formation cloud in this image. The #OrionNebula lies within the central bright region of this scene, where massive star formation occurs most intensely. Cooler gas and dust glows in red and yellow, with point-like sources representing the seeds of new stars. the source : http://www.space.com/34-image-day.html

There’s No Up or Down in Space? Not So Fast

The Orion A star-formation cloud seen by ESA’s Herschel space observatory on Aug. The Orion Nebula is located within the central bright region of this scene, where massive star formation is most intense.

Trigger-Happy Star Formation (NASA, Chandra, 8/12/09). his composite image, combining data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope shows the molecular cloud Cepheus B, located in our Galaxy about 2,400 light years from the Earth. A molecular cloud is a region containing cool interstellar gas and dust left over from the formation of the galaxy and mostly contains molecular hydrogen.

BIRTH OF THE STARS, Photos of the Universe

A towering "mountain" of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust is the site of new star formation in the Carina Nebula. The great gas pillar is being eroded by the ultraviolet radiation from the hottest newborn stars in the nebula.

A pillar of gas in the Carina Nebula is bathed in the light of hot, massive stars. Radiation and fast winds from the stars sculpt the pillar and cause new star formation within it.

The familiar glows bright in many colors at once. The above image is a composite of three of these glowing gas colors. Pillars of dark dust nicely outline some of the denser towers of star formation.

WHEN GALAXIES COLLIDE  The Whirlpool Galaxy, the red spiral, and its companion galaxy, NG 5195 are 23 million light-years from Earth - that's relatively close. IRAC shows the warm dust in red, a sign of active star formation probably triggered by a collision between the two galaxies.

Super Stellar Winds Powered By Intense Star Formation

Fierce galactic winds powered by an intense burst of star formation may blow gas right out of massive galaxies, shutting down their ability to make new stars.
