Fly Through Sparkling Orion Nebula in a New 3-D Visualization

Orion Nebula in 3D: Stunning Nasa video captures baby stars, glowing cosmic clouds like never before

The Orion Nebula is one of the brightest nebulae in the sky that can be seen by the naked eye. NASA has prepared an incredible video of Orion Nebula which will provide viewers a unique 3-D experience of one of the brightest and most recognizable patterns of stars into the northern sky.

The immersive video is an experience to be savored. The 3D fly-through also helps in elucidating the universe for the public by adding structure and depth to the handsome images, all of which makes for an inspiring and educating experience. But the faint jewel sparkling in the middle of Orion's sword is no ordinary stellar gem-it's a huge, blustery nebula that's furiously birthing stars.

The nebula is about 1,350 light-years from Earth, and it likely represents a good example of the type of place our sun was born 4.6 billion years ago, according to NASA. A torrent of ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from the massive, central stars of the Trapezium star cluster have carved out a cavernous bowl-like cavity in the wall of a giant cloud of cold molecular hydrogen laced with dust.

The 3D visualization of the nebula allows the viewer to get a bird's eye view of the baby stars, gas, and dust of the nebula as it moves in space. Colorful Hubble and Spitzer images were then overlaid on the terrain.

With the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, a NASA team has discovered a patch of low-mass brown dwarf planets in the Orion Nebula with water in their atmospheres, according to a release from NASA.

But with an election year coming up fast, priorities and motivations will likely change for some lawmakers. Meanwhile, the measure faces an uphill battle in the Senate: it hasn't had a single hearing yet.

"Hubble sees objects that glow in visible light, which are typically in the thousands of degrees".

Scientific intuition and scientific knowledge guided the 3D interpretation for creating the movie.

The visualization comes from NASA's Universe of Learning program, which provides educational resources to students and others interested in the space agency's astrophysics research.

"We also have this very peculiar object", said Giovanni Strampelli of the Space Telescope Science Institute. Summer and Hurt "worked with experts to analyze the structure inside the nebula", using visible light to create the surfaces, and infrared light to construct much of the nebula's structure.

A special rendering code was written to facilitate the efficient combination of the millions of semi-transparent elements of gas, to give an ethereal feel to the nebula. After rendering, these layers and the gaseous nebula are brought back together to create the visualization.
