Orion Nebula: A Hubble Image Tour

About this video
Duration: 4 minutes, 3 seconds

The Orion Nebula is a cavern of rolling dust and gas where thousands of stars are forming. The energetic young stars tear up and transform their place of birth, spewing jets of hot gas, unleashing supersonic shock waves and pouring forth stellar winds.

Explore the science along with the scenery – Image Tours show Hubble pictures through an astronomer's eyes, pinpointing and explaining key features to add understanding to the joy of cosmic sightseeing.
