Here, we see Hubble's most detailed view so far of the entire Crab Nebula. The Crab is arguably the single most interesting object, as well as one of the most studied, in all of astronomy, NASA says. This image is the largest ever taken with Hubble's WFPC2 workhorse camera.
Astronomers say the Crab Nebula is one of the most intricately structured and highly dynamical objects ever observed.
