It seems the world is currently hit by an outbreak of the Star Wars movie. Coinciding with the release of the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" movie, the NASA's space telescope, Hubble taken amazing photograph of space landscape resembling "the double-bladed lightsaber".

It located in the center of the photo, in the dark dust that looks like a Jedi robe, a new star emit a twin-light into space like a birth announcement to the universe.
"Science fiction has inspired many generations of scientists and engineers, not to mention the Star Wars movie," said John Grunsfeld, an astronaut as well as officials at NASA Science Mission Directorate, as reported by ScienceDaily.
"Nothing is as powerful as the Hubble in bringing the motivation of science because of the space telescope uncover the mysteries of the universe."
The space lightsaber is not located in a far away galaxy, it is still in our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is in the basic turbulent birth of new stars known as Orion B, a complex molecular cloud that located 1,350 light years away.
When stars formed in the giant clouds of cold hydrogen molecular, some of the surrounding materials to collapse influenced by gravity and then formed a flattened disk that surrounds the new star.
Although later the planets would be frozen on the disc, the protostar's early rounds, it devoured the disc with an appetite like one of the Star Wars movie characters, Jabba.
Gas from the disc go into the star candidates and swallowed with gusto. Super hot material ejected from the star to the opposite directions in the axis of rotation of the star.
The boundary between the pressure caused by the explosion or "shock front" formed along the jets and heating the surrounding gas to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit.
Emanations then collide with gas and dust around and empty space, like the flow of water is sprayed to sweep the dunes. Shock front matted clump nebula and are collectively called Herbig-Haro objects (HH).
On the right side the cloaked star, a pair of light shoots is the new star that stands out and shows their lightsaber dim - including one that bore a tunnel through the clouds towards the upper right side of the image.
Overall, a handful of HH jets have been found in this region in the bright light, and the numbers are almost the same as the Hubble infrared observations.
These new stars are an ideal target for the next NASA's space telescope, James Webb, who will have a larger vision infrared waves to look further into the dust around stars that recently formed. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCEDAILY]Note: This blog can be accessed via your smart phone.
