Spectacular photos from space of Carina Nebula A view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth - and death - is taking place. Hubble's view of the nebula shows star birth in a new level of detail.
This cool space wallpaper shows a massive, young stellar grouping, called is only a few million years old and resides in the 30 Doradus Nebula, a turbulent star-birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.
The caterpillar-shaped knot, called IRAS is a protostar in a very early evolutionary stage. It is still in the process of collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it. The object lies light-years away in the constellation Cygnus

This image is the largest image ever taken with Hubble's camera. It was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and is the highest resolution image of the entire Crab Nebula ever made.
Images of the star forming region like those in the infrared by NASA's Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) satellite provide clear clues with indications that massive stars near the center of empty cavities are older than stars near the edges.
A Primordial Quasar - The nearest quasars are now known to be supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Gas and dust that falls toward a quasar glows brightly, sometimes outglowing the entire home galaxy.
Andromeda Galaxy-- largest Hubble image ever assembled, this bird's-eye view of a portion of the galaxy is the sharpest large composite image ever taken of our galactic next-door neighbor, 2 million light-years away,
