Chance meeting creates celestial diamond ring
Munich, Germany (SPX) Apr 13, 2014
Most stars with masses similar to that of our Sun will end their lives as white dwarfs - small, very dense, and hot bodies that slowly cool down over billions of years. On the way to this final phase of their lives the stars throw their atmospheres out into the space and create planetary nebulae, colourful glowing clouds of gas surrounding the small, bright stellar relics. This image, captured by ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT), shows the remarkably round planetary nebula Abell 33, located some 1 ... read more
