Orion Nebula

Orion Nebula

Orion Nebula in Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Sulfur Image Credit Copyright: César Blanco González The Orion Nebula is among the most intensely studied celestial features.The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers have directly observed protoplanetary disks, brown dwarfs, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the nebula.

The Orion Nebula is in fact part of a much larger nebula that is known as the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex, which extends throughout the constellation of Orion and includes Barnard's Loop, the Horsehead Nebula, M43, M78 and the Flame Nebula. - Astrophotography by Roth Ritter -

The Sword Of Orion - The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt.

During the later parts of their lives, stars can shed material into the surrounding space, depositing heavy elements. The most dramatic way this is done is through a supernova explosion. In fact, since the earliest moments of the Universe, during the Big Bang, heavy elements have only been produced as a by-product of stellar evolution! That's what astronomers mean when they say "we are all star-stuff."

Orion Nebula - NASA's Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes teamed up to expose the chaos that baby stars are creating 1,500 light years away in a cosmic cloud called the Orion nebula. This striking composite indicates that four monstrously massive stars, collectively called the "Trapezium," at the center of the cloud may be the main culprits in the Orion constellation, a familiar sight in the fall and winter night sky in the northern hemisphere. - Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/STScI
