This composite image shows N49, a supernova remnant about 160,000 light years distant in the Dorado constellation within the Large Magellenic Cloud. X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is in blue, and shows a bullet-shaped object to the lower right, which may have been blown out of a debris field left by an exploded star.  via 'The Universe on Facebook

the aftermath of a supernova explosion in the LMC. A new long observation from NASA's Chandra shown in blue, reveals evidence for a bullet-shaped object being blown out of a debris field left over from an exploded star

Andromeda in Infrared

Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are

Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of 400 light years or so, it should be one of the brightest stars in the sky … yet it actually appears relatively dim to the eye.

NGC Glowing Gas in the Milky Way A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the

ALMA discovers large 'hot' cocoon around a small baby star

A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…

Blue Phantom Nebula

This looks like a big scary monster is clutching a wee person in his hand! -- Hang on! Second look and it's a happy person looking down at the cute bambino cradled in their arms. Yes, we'll go with that as it's less nightmare-

An international team of astronomers, led by David Sobral from Leinden University of the Netherlands used three telescopes located across the globe to study the trends in star formation, from the earliest stars that made up the first galaxies in the universe, up until now. Their findings suggests something quite shocking .. almost 95% of stars that will ever live have already been born!
