Tour Stunning Hubble Nebulae Images

Over the years, the Hubble Space Telescope has taken hundreds of images of different kinds of incredible nebulae in our universe.

A nebula is a giant cloud of dust and gas in space. There are different types of nebulae, ranging from sites where stars are being born under gravitational pressures to expanding gaseous remnants thrown off by dying stars.

Hubble Senior Project Scientist, Dr. Jennifer Wiseman, takes us on a tour of some of our universe’s most incredible Nebulae.
