Hubble saw star diamonds

All the good events, no matter what impact they had, inevitably leave behind some of the imprints of the past - this statement perfectly fits the young stars whose activities form nebulae.

NASA / ESA’s stunning image of the Hubble Space Telescope is stunning with the details of an infinite space called Trumpler 14. The latter sparkle as brightly as diamonds and contains about 2,000 young large stars emitting enormous amounts of energy. The cluster is located approximately 8,000 light years from Earth.

By cosmic standards, these stars are very, very young. They are only 500, 000 years old, but they have already reached a large size. The mass of each indicates that in any collision with a foreign object the star will emit a huge amount of hydrogen fuel. The brightest star observing Hubble is HD 93129Aa. She is the hottest star in the Milky Way.

As young stars, they produce predominantly strong stellar winds that crash into the surrounding cloud of dust and gas, producing shock waves and X-ray explosions. These winds break through the interstellar medium, cutting out vast cracks in the nebula. The effect of the compression of gas clouds also occurs, due to which the formation of new stars takes place.

These stars can burn through the nebula and die young, breaking apart the interstellar medium.
