    Large Magellanic Cloud, 30 Doradus region [satellite galaxy of the Milky Way]



    This video is a zoom into the largest star-forming region in the satellite galaxy, Large Magellanic Cloud. At the heart of the small galaxy is the Tarantula nebula. Hubble unveils a rich tapestry of star birth and star destruction among its millions of stars. The video zooms into the core of the Tarantula nebula, which is a region called 30 Doradus that contains several young star clusters.

    It's fantastic!

    Thanks Dragonfly,

    It is stunning and at the same time stunting!! We really can be quite insignificant in the grand scheme of our Universe.
