NASA Shares Fascinating Image Of Pillars Of Creation Captured By James Webb Telescope

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released fascinating a image of the iconic pillars of creation captured by the James Webb Space Telescope.

The iconic creation is set within the vast Eagle Nebula, which lies 6,500 light-years away. NASA’s Hubble Telescope first captured the Pillars of Creation in 1995 and revisited it in 2014.

“Newly formed stars are the scene-stealers in this image”, NASA said in a press release. “When knots with sufficient mass form within the pillars of gas and dust, they begin to collapse under their own gravity, slowly heat up, and eventually form new stars.”

Explaining the wavy lines that look like lava at the edges of some pillars, the space research center says that ” These are ejections from stars that are still forming within the gas and dust. Young stars periodically shoot out supersonic jets that collide with clouds of material, like these thick pillars. This sometimes also results in bow shocks, which can form wavy patterns like a boat does as it moves through the water.”

Earlier, NASA shared a picture of the cosmic bubble wrap- Bubble Nebula. The visual was captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The cosmic bubble wrap is 7,100 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Cassiopeia. The Bubble Nebula is one of the most famous star bubbles.
