NASA news: Hubble Telescope's greatest images after 30 of deep space exploration 1

The Eagle Nebula (M16) – Pillars of Creation, 1995

This striking image of the Eagle Nebula is perhaps Hubble’s best-known photo.

The picture features colossal columns of stellar gas and dust that have been dubbed the Pillars of Creation.

The tallest of the pillars measure approximately four light-years across – 23,514,501,000,000 miles.

NASA said: “As the pillars themselves are slowly eroded away by the ultraviolet light, small globules of even denser gas buried within the pillars are uncovered.

“Forming inside at least some of the globules are embryonic stars.”
