Fly through the #Hubble25 anniversary image of star cluster Westerlund 2 in 3-D!

This visualization provides a three-dimensional perspective on Hubble's 25th anniversary image of the nebula Gum 29 with the star cluster Westerlund 2 at its core. The flight traverses the foreground stars and approaches the lower left rim of the nebula Gum 29. Passing through the wispy darker clouds on the near side, the journey reveals bright gas illuminated by the intense radiation of the newly formed stars of cluster Westerlund 2. Within the nebula, several pillars of dark, dense gas are being shaped by the energetic light and strong stellar winds from the brilliant cluster of thousands of stars. Note that the visualization is intended to be a scientifically reasonable interpretation and that distances within the model are significantly compressed.

"Morning sun casts long shadows. I bet the view is equally stunning looking up from below," tweeted astronaut Reid Wiseman today aboard the International Space Station.

The space station, including its large solar arrays, spans the area of a U.S. football field, including the end zones, and weighs 924,739 pounds. The complex now has more livable room than a conventional six-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.

Our home where we are a indivisible part of...
 
On this Earth Day, our Administrator Charlie Bolden shares his thoughts on our home planet. 'Living in space is going to be part of our future, but what we know about Earth and how we live on this planet is absolutely critical... We want to know how our planet works, how we affect it, and how it might change in the future.' More: http://go.nasa.gov/1K5jF7v
