Hubble’s Look At Star Formation
The Hubble Space Telescope has given us some of the most mind-blowing science photos of all time. One or well, several of those have to do with the evolution of stars throughout the universe. While we’d like to show you Hubble’s major timelapse of star formation, that would equate to several photos rather than one. Instead, we’re showing you the star formation images that Hubble collected with the help of the Mark McCaughrean of the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy, C. Robert O’Dell of Rice University, and NASA. The image shows lots of planetary formation, but that all begins with the stars that allow for those planets to even form at all.
