Do you feel insignificant and discolored?
After 28 years floating around in space, you might think that the Hubble telescope has no way of surprising humans with their photos of the universe. Well, you see that you’re wrong.
Hubble began its special journey in April 1990. Each time it completes one more year, scientists from NASA and the European Space Agency share the most amazing photos that have been taken in those twelve months. This year, the portrait that leaves us ojiplaticos is of the Nebula of the Lagoon, in infrared version.
The Lagoon Nebula is unbelievably gigantic: 55 light years wide, 20 light years high and visible to the human eye despite being about 4,000 light years away. The Hubble photo covers about four light years, impossible to capture the whole. In the center of the nebula there is a “young and monstrous star” about 32 times larger than the sun, and 200,000 times brighter.
In other words … Our solar system is a mucus by its side.
