"20.05.2015 00:38:54" Triggered Star Formation This animation illustrates the process of triggered star formation. First, a massive star in its final death throes explodes or "goes supernova," shooting a shock wave through surrounding clouds of gas and dust. Next, the shock wave compresses the ga
"20.05.2015 00:25:33" The Tarantula Nebula NASA's new Spitzer Space Telescope has captured in stunning detail the spidery filaments and newborn stars of the Tarantula Nebula, a rich star-forming region also known as 30 Doradus. In this animation the infrared structures seen by this new observ
"20.05.2015 00:22:15" Messier 81 This 22-second animation uses an "infrared spotlight" to highlight differences between a visible-light image of Messier 81 and the Spitzer/MIPS+IRAC infrared view.
"20.05.2015 00:16:42" Herbig-Haro 46/47 This 18-second animation zooms in on Herbig-Haro 46/47 and its embedded protostar with molecular outflows. Spitzer/IRAC lifts the cosmic veil and transforms the dark and opaque cloud seen at visible light wavelengths to a spectacular view of a previo
"20.05.2015 00:12:43" Dark Globule in IC 1396 This 22-second animation shows how our view of a dark globule in IC 1396 changes as we move from visible light through near-infrared to mid-infrared wavelengths. The dark globule is virtually opaque at visible-light wavelengths and becomes transparen
"19.05.2015 23:28:22" Model Dust Ring A 12-second animation shows how ansae are created, by taking a model dust ring and tilting it from a face-on orientation to edge-on.
