Another nebula has been uploaded!

Hi all,

 

Another emission nebula has been uploaded. This time, Gum 29 (RCW 49) takes the stage. This nebula is a star forming region having given birth to the young and compact open cluster Westerlund 2, which contains a double star with two of the most massive stars known (82 and 83 solar masses). You can find the image at:

Enjoy,

Josep
