Snowflakes, like flames NASA discover “song of ice and fire” in the universe

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has discovered a “cosmic snowflake” of beautiful newborn stars and a flame-like constellation of enceladi molecules in space,media reported Tuesday. The newborn stars, nicknamed “Snowflake Clusters” by scientists, are reported to be only about 100,000 years old and are still in their birthplace and have not been moved. They gleam pink and red and arrange them in a snowflake-like pattern.

The NASA statement noted that stellar clouds are a dynamic structure that is constantly changing. These new stars are now in a straight line, but once they mature, they will drift gradually, and the “snowflake combination” will no longer exist. “Because these stars are running in a straight line along the wheel spokes, scientists believe these are new stars, or ‘protostars’,” NASA said. “

The day after the discovery of the “cosmic snowflake,” NASA telescopes captured another incredible image of an object that appeared to be like a flame passing through the wilderness.

It turned out to be the Perseus Molecular Cloud, a huge collection of gas and dust spanning 500 light-years.

NASA says the fiery glow is warm dust and infrared radiation from clusters that “light up the surrounding nebula, as if the sun lit up a cloudy sky at sunset.”

The Centarome molecular cloud is home to many young stars and is located on the edge of ence. On the right side of this huge cloud is a group of bright young stars, called NGC 1333, 1,000 light-years from Earth. Astronomers have observed them since the mid-1980s, but there are still many mysteries to be solved.

Luisa Rebull, an astrophysicist who studies NASA’s infrared science, says many of the star brothers and sisters may form tight clusters together, but stars are moving all the time, and as the stars age, they fade away, “this region makes astronomers understand that We still don’t know much about star formation. “
