Star Cluster R...

Star Cluster R136 Bursts Out - In the center of star-forming region 30 Doradus (Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud) lies a huge cluster containing some of the largest, hottest, and most massive stars known. Gas and dust clouds have been sculpted into elongated shapes by powerful winds and ultraviolet radiation from these hot cluster stars. (Image Credit: NASA, ESA, & F. Paresce (INAF-IASF), R.
