The Orion Nebula in fulldome

The Orion Nebula rotates overhead like a celestial pinwheel in this fulldome clip. The gas and dust seen here provides a cradle for hundreds of young stars and is beautifully sculpted and illuminated by radiation from the hotter, more massive stars within the swirling and outlandish cloud.
