Featured: 3D Trip Into The Carina Nebula

0 ratings
From: Kirk
This is a pseudo three-dimensional trip into a giant ‘mountain’ of cool hydrogen and dust in the Carina Nebula – a vast star-forming region in our Milky Way galaxy. The nebula is too far away for Hubble Space Telescope to see in true three dimensions. But this visualisation creates foreground and background elements based on an approximation of how the region might be distributed in a 3D volume. A virtual camera flies through this synthesised space to create a 3D effect.
