NASA releases stunning telescope images of blue bubbles containing thousands of new stars

The Space Agency has released the spectacular pictures illustrating hundreds of blue bubbles glowing in the atmosphere. The remarkable images were captured using NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and the infrared cameras perfectly display the reactions taking place. The image shows a splash of red, blue and green light being emitted by the stars. The blue bubbles are filled with gas and dust particles and according to NASA contain hundreds to thousands of stars.

Its striking shade of blue displayed through the infrared telescope represents a wavelength of light emitted by stars in space.

The shades of green in the image represents dust and organic molecules called hydrocarbons.

Meanwhile the dark shades of red shows warm dust that has been heated by stars.

Although the blue bubbles appear to be located close to each other, NASA estimates the distance is between 10 to 30 light-years.

The active region of star formation is located within the Milky Way galaxy, in the constellation Aquila – also known as ‘the eagle’ in Latin.

Aquila constellation is located in the northern sky, near the celestial equator.

Aquila is the 22nd biggest star constellation in the atmosphere.

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope was launched on August 25, 2003 from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Base.

The 16-year mission, discovered exoplanets – planets located outside the Solar System.

The project also studied galaxies in the universe and asteroids in the solar system, the mission is due to come to an end in January 2020.

She added: “But even after Spitzer ceases transmissions, scientists will continue making discoveries from its 16 years of data for decades to come.

“Spitzer enables groundbreaking advances in our understanding of planetary systems around other stars, the evolution of galaxies in the nearby and distant universe, the structure of our Milky Way galaxy, the infinite variety in the lives of stars, and the constituents of our solar system.”
