Meeting an addition to the Milky Way
The European Southern Observatory recently released some of the most stunning images of a newborn star ever. With the help of the ESO's Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, the observations found material being ejected from the star was moving much quicker than previously measured.
Pictured above is a view of the southern Milky Way. In the constellation of Vela (The Sails) there lies a rich region of dark clouds and young stars, including Herbig-Haro object HH 46/47.
