NASA has revealed a stunning new image of a ' celestial firework show'. It reveals a nebula, located 22,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina, that contains a central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603.

NASA has released a spectacular image showing a glittering collection of young stars that almost looks like a “July 4th fireworks display,” according to a statement from the space agency.

The stars reside in the center of a nebula—a vast cloud of interstellar gas and dust—known as NGC 3603, located around 20,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Carina. In the central region of this nebula is a huge cluster of young, hot stars.

NASA’s next flagship space telescope is delayed again

  NASA’s next flagship space telescope is delayed again NASA has again delayed the launch of its next-generation space observatory, known as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the space agency announced today. The telescope now has a new launch date of March 30th, 2021. It’s the second delay to the project’s timeline this year, and the third in the last nine months.“We’re all disappointed that the culmination of Webb and its launch is taking longer than expected, but we’re creating something new here.

About this image . The brilliant tapestry of young stars flaring to life resemble a glittering fireworks display in the 25th anniversary NASA Hubble Space Telescope image "This vista of starry fireworks and glowing gas is a fitting image for our celebration of 25 years of amazing Hubble science."

The relatively clear environment surrounding the bright stars in the center of the image appears serene, however, this is far from the case. This vast cavity was created by powerful ultraviolet radiation and violent stellar winds that have blown away the gas and dust that make up the nebula.

The bright stars were mostly born around the same time, although they differ in size, mass, temperature and color. The lifecycle of a star is defined by its mass, so despite those in the cluster having similar ages, they may still be at very different stages of their development. In light of this, analyzing clusters such as these can be particularly beneficial to researchers.

NGC 3603 is especially interesting because it is the most massive visible cloud of glowing gas and plasma—the fourth fundamental state of matter—in the Milky Way.

Total lunar eclipse to happen in July 2018

  Total lunar eclipse to happen in July 2018 The longest lunar eclipse of the century will happen on July 27, 2018, but you may need to travel far to see itA lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly, casting Earth's shadow on the moon. The eclipse will be partially visible for 3 hours and 55 minutes. This also makes it the longest time an eclipse will be partially visible between the years 2011 and 2020.

Celestial Fireworks . View all images . Resembling the puffs of smoke and sparks from a summer fireworks display in this image from NASA 's Hubble Space Telescope, these delicate filaments are actually sheets of debris from a stellar explosion in a neighboring galaxy.

Meanwhile, its central star cluster is the densest concentration of very massive stars in the galaxy. In fact, this cluster contains three of the most massive and most luminous stars known to science. Enormous stars such as these burn through their hydrogen fuel relatively quickly, ending their lives in titanic supernova explosions.

Studying clusters like the one found at the center of NGC 3603 can help scientists to better understand how massive stars formed in the early distant universe.

NGC 3603 was first observed by English astronomer and polymath John Herschel during a visit to South Africa in 1834. He later catalogued it as a nebula in his Results of Astronomical Observations made at the Cape of Good Hope, which was published in 1847.

The NASA image is a combination of two pictures captured by the Hubble Space Telescope in August 2009 and December 2009 using its Wide Field Camera 3 that can detect both visible and infrared light.

SpaceX and Boeing are racing to put a man in space, and they’re both losing .
NASA would love to stop having to rely on Russia to send its astronauts into space, but realizing that dream means that someone needs to step up to the plate with a safe, reliable crew transportation system. Right now, both SpaceX and Boeing are working independently to meet that demand, but a new report from the Government Accountability Office reveals that neither of them are as far along as they should be, and that’s not great news to U.S. astronauts.
