Hubble Hits 17th Anniversary

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope: 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula.

In celebration of the 17th anniversary of the launch and deployment of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, this, one of the largest panoramic images ever taken with Hubble’s cameras, is being released. It is a 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth – and death – is taking place.
