Entire galaxies feel the heat from newborn stars: Bursts of star birth can curtail future galaxy growth



Photo: Resembling the puffs of smoke and sparks from a summer fireworks display in this image from NASA ESA Hubble Space Telescope, these delicate filaments are actually sheets of debris from a stellar explosion in a neighboring galaxy.

Taking pictures of deep space is hard, that is unless you happen to have a very sophisticated telescopic remote operated camera mounted on a spacecraft hurling through the outer reaches of the galaxy like the Hubble Telescope. Then it's pretty much just point and shoot. Even so, it makes for some of the best science photography of the year. By the way, the light shape in the lower left corner is the shell of a newly formed star. How cool is that?!?

Hubble spots the remains of a star gone supernova. The thin, blood-red shells are actually the remnants from when an unstable progenitor star exploded violently as a supernova around 600 years ago.
