Astronomers image the star-born web of a cosmic Tarantula Nebula

A composite image of the star-forming region 30 Doradus – also known as the Tarantula Nebula – reveals regions of cold gas that can collapse to form stars. (Image credits: ESO, ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/Wong et al., ESO/M.-R. Cioni/VISTA Magellanic Cloud Survey.)

A newly released image of 30 Doradus, also known as the Tarantula Nebula, shows thin cobweb-like strands of gas that reveal a dramatic battle between gravity and stellar energy that astronomers predict. How massive stars have shaped this star-formation. Regions and why do they continue to arise within this molecular cloud.

170,000. High-resolution image of the Tarantula Nebula located light year From Earth The Atacama is made up of data collected by the Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Located in Great Magellanic Clouda satellite galaxy of GalaxyThe Tarantula Nebula is one of the brightest star-forming regions in our galactic backyard. It is also one of the most active in terms of the birth of new stars, some of which have more than 150 times the mass. Sunday, At the center of the Large Magellanic Cloud is a stellar nursery that has given birth to 800,000 stars – half a million of which are hot, young and massive stars.
