A new image from Chile’s Gemini South telescope puts the stellar nurseries of the Carina Nebula in stunning focus. Astronomers are looking for the Carina Nebula to learn more about star formation. Images released on Monday show the complex “dance” of glowing gas and dust in the nebula’s western wall. The secret to this extraordinary image is the telescope’s adaptive optics system. “Adaptive optics can compensate for turbulence in the earth’s atmosphere to produce a tit for tat image that is comparable to that of a space telescope,” the National Science Foundation’s noir lab said in a statement on Monday;. Noirlab runs the Gemini Observatory. < / P > < p > by looking at nebulae under infrared light, we are able to see “the clearest view to date of how giant young stars influence their surroundings and how star and planet formation proceeds.”. < / P > < p > the team behind the images, led by Rice University astronomers, published a paper on the results in the Astrophysical Journal bulletin on Monday. Patrick Hartigan, the lead author of the study, called the results “amazing”;. < / P > < p > “structures like the ‘west wall’ will be a rich hunting ground for Webb and adaptive optics ground-based telescopes like Gemini South,” Hartigan said in a statement from Rice University. “Each will penetrate the dust cover and reveal new information about star birth.” Chinese version of K-car: reading a10e design drawing exposure
