Our Sun is one of the great reasons to be here today. It provides much of the energy needed for the existence of life, and without it I will not write this and you will not be here to read it. We think the stars are ancient things that existed forever, but new ones are being created, and NASA just seals a magnificent image at the place where new stars are born.
NASA calls it a "cosmic butterfly," but in reality it's a pair of massive gas clouds, its official name being Westerhout 40 (W40), a nebula, W40 and nebulae as massive pockets of space where material like gas and stardust "In the giant clouds of gas and dust in the space, the gravitational force combines the material into dense lumps, and sometimes these lumps reach a critical density that allows the stars to get into the stars," explains JPL's NASA. form in the nucleus
The nebulaes are like star nurseries, but the stars are also dying here.In fact, the massive "wings" of the cosmic butterfly ̵
