Hubblecast 51: Star-forming region S 106

The ESA astronomy podcast bringing you the latest from the Hubble Space Telescope

15 December 2011

In this episode of the Hubblecast, we take a tour of the compact star-forming region Sh 2-106. Its hourglass shape is caused by the final, violent phases of a star’s formation in the middle of the gaseous nebula. This episode explains some of the science behind Hubble’s observations and brings them to life with detailed 3D computer visualisations.
