Revisited Hubble telescope image reveals Veil Nebula in exquisite detail

Recommended Posts

Manwon Lender

The Hubble Space Telescope has revealed the cosmos in stunning detail over its three decades of service. The telescope's view of the Veil Nebula -- a remnant of a supernova -- has gotten a makeover that reveals previously unseen details of the structure. The Veil is 2,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan. It was the subject of a 2015 Hubble image release, but the new look highlights what the European Space Agency (ESA) described as"the nebula's delicate threads and filaments of ionized gas" in a statement this week.

The changes between the two image versions may seem subtle at first, but the delight is in the details. "The new post-processing methods have further enhanced details of emissions from doubly ionized oxygen (seen here in blues), ionized hydrogen, and ionized nitrogen (seen here in reds)," ESA said.

I can't wait to see what the new James Webb instrument has for us, if they ever get it up, and then new instruments. Exciting times ahead, woohoo!

I think we are in trouble Houston, because James Webb can no longer get it up!!!!:w00t::D

But their are certainly exciting times ahead even without James Webb, no doubt about that!!:tu:
