This image, from Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3, shows the chaos of star birth, dust, and collision out in the giant elliptical galaxy Centaurus A.
Captured by NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), this image is actually a number if images cobbled together to capture a huge swath of our own Milky Way. In it, we see a number of nebulae, reminders that while it feels like we live in a pretty stable place within our little solar system, all around us stars are being born, stars are dying, and the galaxy is otherwise churning.
