Hubble Space Telescope Pillars of Creation new image

Stellar Nursery delights once again


In 1997, the world sat breathless as the Hubble Space Telescope released the very famous image entitled the Pillars of Creation. A stellar nursery, the Pillars of Creation is a true sight to behold.

Although no telescope of less than several meters in diameter can provide the kind of imagery that Hubble does, a big dobsonian telescope would enable the viewer to get a close  up view of the Eagle Nebula, and to see the stars that comprise the stellar nursery. A stellar nursery is exactly as it sounds: it is a place where baby stars are being born, and where, in some cases, the right kind of star will be born to enable a planetary system to evolve. Planetary systems do not evolve around all stars, because not all stars either live long enough to create planetary systems, or they are too small to prevent a planet from becoming tidally locked, or to get enough sunlight to sustain Life As We Know It.
