  Spitzer Telescope Finds Hidden Jet

Spitzer Telescope Finds Hidden Jet
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope took this image of a baby star sprouting two identical jets (green lines emanating from fuzzy star). The jet on the right had been seen before in visible-light views, but the jet at left -- the identical twin to the first jet -- could only be seen in detail with Spitzer's infrared detectors.
