Resembling the hair in Botticelli’s famous portrait of the birth of Venus, an image from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured softly glowing filaments streaming from hot young stars in a nearby nebula. These wispy clouds of glowing gas make up a nebula known as N44C. It is part of the larger N44 complex, which includes young, hot, massive stars, other nebulas, and a “superbubble” blown out by multiple supernova explosions.
