The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope grabbed a beautiful, haunting image of a gaseous “stellar nursery” that the space agencies published Friday.
In this image we can see what’s known as Free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globule (frEGGs), dark and compact globules of dust and gas, surrounded by a bubble of hot, ionized gas wherein new stars can be formed. The purple-ish, blue-ish border around the dusty frEGGs is the boundary between the the cooler globules and the hotter gas bubble, according to the ESA.
