The star cluster Hodge 301 is inside the Tarantula Nebula. This nebula is located in our galactic neighbor, the Large Magellanic Cloud. Many of the stars in Hodge 301 are so old they have exploded. They are blasting material into the area around them at speeds of almost 200 miles per second! The high-speed matter is plowing into the nebula. The impact shocks and squashes the gas into long strands. | Star Clusters | Kids Discover
This is a great collection of math videos that help to teach our students place value. They can be a great introductory video to enrich the lesson or even watched prior to math centers or guided math time.
Rainbow infrared light in Orion - This new view of the Orion Nebula highlights emerging star hidden in gas and clouds. It shows the infrared observations taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope and the European Space Agency Herschel mission. A star is formed of a group of gas and dust, creating a warm glob of material powered by a disk that surrounds it. These discs with dust are brighter at longer wavelengths, which appear as red dots in this image.
