Hubble celebrates its 29th birthday with unrivaled view of the Southern Crab Nebula 2

This incredible image of the hourglass-shaped Southern Crab Nebula was taken to mark the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s 29th anniversary in space. The nebula, created by a binary star system, is one of the many objects that Hubble has demystified throughout its productive life. This new image adds to our understanding of the nebula and demonstrates the telescope’s continued capabilities. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/04/190418131419.htm
