The Birth of the Biggest Stars


Recommended Posts

These stars form from the collapse of enormous clouds of gas, and can shine more than 100,000 times as bright as our own Sun. The images were captured as a bonus, taken while the space observatory was slowly turning from one target to another. A team of astronomers built up a vast web of images comprised from 10,000 of these telescope repositionings, and then identified potential star forming regions from the data.
