Artist’s impression of a Herbig-Haro object

Loading player...

This artist’s concept of a Herbig-Haro object shows a jet coming from a young star. Images taken over two decades with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have captured the motion of these jets, showing the matter moving over time. This artist’s impression shows how the stellar outflows might look over a period of many centuries.
