Hubble telescope zeroes in on green blob in space


www.comcast.net

The Hubble Space Telescope got its first peek at a mysterious giant green blob in outer space and found that it's strangely alive. The bizarre glowing blob is giving birth to new stars, some only a couple million years old, in remote areas of the universe where stars don't normally form.

I came across this article and found it quite interesting. It is a quick read, and towards the end of the article it says, and I quote this sentence from the article: "she says she can even see what passes for arms and eyes."
The wonders of what we don't know is dumbfounding. Whether it is discoveries of caves in Vietnam, new species in earths oceans, or stellar 'lifelike' masses in space.
This is interesting news, and I would enjoy reading responses from those who are well versed in astronomy.

Although the cloud is primarily hydrogen gas, from which stars coalesce, there must also be oxygen gas, which Hubble sees as green. And according to Phil Plait, it measures 100,000 ly across, about the same as our galaxy.

My apologies for posting a topic already being discussed. I certainly did not intend to step on anyones toes.
No I did not search to see if anyone already covered this story. I just went ahead and posted it. I guess next time I should actually do some leg work before posting.

Oh not at all we've all done it a couple of times in our posting lives. I generally hate being the person to cross-list posts but it makes it a bit easier on the administers so. Again no worries wasn't much of a discussion going on, but enough to warrant the cross-listing.
