Striking images from the Hubble Telescope. An image of a nebula which is about 170,000 light years away from us

Star Cluster NGC 2074 in the Large Magellanic Cloud Hubble peered into a small portion of the nebula near the star cluster NGC 2074 (top). The region is a firestorm of raw stellar creation, perhaps.

This composite of 30 Doradus, the Tarantula Nebula, contains data from Chandra (blue), Hubble (green), and Spitzer (red). Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, the Tarantula Nebula is one of the largest star-forming regions close to the Milky Way.

This painterly portrait of a star-forming cloud, called NGC is a combination of multiwavelength light from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, the European Southern Observatory's New Technology Telescope, and the European Space Agency.

Orion-Nebel

Nebular clouds such as the Orion Nebula are thought to be most likely environment for synthesizing and promoting the evolution of molecules needed for the origin of life. Giant gas nebulae such as Orion are storehouses of sugars that form.
