Space Cloud W51

Space Cloud W51
      Chandra X-Ray Space Observatory has spotted a space gas molecular cloud which was named as W51 cloud and it is very closest to our earth. It is something about 17,000 light years far away from us. Its image provides excellent opportunity to study the forming of stars in our Milkyway Galaxy.

Image shows high energy stellar output. The above image is captured after a exposure about 20 hours using chandra x-ray. Similarly Spitzer space telescope also took infrared image of this cloud.The cloud was mostly surrounded by cool materials and vast gas molecules of hydrogen and helium, it may have more gases which stretched over the space.This image cloud consists of million of new stars.
