Space - Orion Nebula from Hubble Telescope Art Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Art Print of the Orion Nebula as taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. This dramatic panoramic view offers a look inside a cavern of rolling dust and gas where thousands of stars are constantly forming. This is the sharpest view ever taken of this region in the Orion Nebula. More than 3,000 stars of various sizes appear in this image, some of these have never been seen before, because there was never a powerful enough scope to get them into view. The Orion Nebula is a picture book of star formation, from the massive young stars that are shaping the nebula to the pillars of dense gas that may be the homes of future budding stars. The bright central region in this image is the home of the four largest stars in the nebula called the Trapezium because they are arranged in a trapezoid formation. The bright glow at the upper left is from M43, a small region being shaped by a massive young star's ultraviolet light. Astronomers call the region a miniature Orion Nebula because only one star is sculpting the landscape. Next to M43 are dense, dark pillars of dust and gas that point toward the Trapezium. The glowing region on the right reveals arc and bubbles formed when stellar winds collide with material. The faint red stars near the bottom are the myriad brown dwarfs that Hubble spied for the first time in the nebula. Sometimes called Failed Stars, brown dwarfs are cool objects that are too small to be ordinary stars because they cannot sustain nuclear fusion in their cores the way our Sun does. The dark red column, below left, shows an illuminated edge of the cavity wall. The Orion Nebula is 1500 light years away and is the nearest star forming region to Planet Earth. Astronomers used 520 Hubble images taken in five colors, to make this picture.
