Cassiopeia like you've never seen it
This level of 3D detail is the result of a collaborative effort involving NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Smithsonian Institution. The image combines data supplied by Chandra, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and ground-based installations on Earth.
Meanwhile, the Chandra X-ray Observatory, which houses a trove of spectacular space photos, is releasing never-before-seen images from its archive, which we're reproducing in this gallery. Happy viewing.
