Hubble Space Telescope used its ‘Wide Field Camera 3’ to capture the picture. ESA has told It is believed that this gas was released due to the explosion of a newborn star. Usually such incidents happen in the early stages of the formation of a star. Because of this, the gases released move forward at supersonic speed. Something similar is also visible in the current image.
Herbig–Haro objects form when jets of gas collide with material surrounding a star in its early stages. This collision heats the material, due to which the glow is seen there.
This is not the first time this Herbig-Haro object has been observed. Hubble captured it between 1994 and 2007 and in 2015 with more detail. It is said that this thing is being developed for many years and there is a lot of significant change in it.
According to ESA’s website, HH34 resides in the Orion Nebula, about 1,250 light-years from Earth. Star formation events keep happening here. High-resolution images of HH34 and other jets taken by Hubble will help astronomers understand future observations by the James Webb Space Telescope.
The Hubble Telescope was launched into space in April 1990. Since then it has captured many great pictures of deep space. Very soon this telescope will be replaced by ‘James Webb Telescope’. It was launched by NASA on 25 December last year. Right now it is setting up its instruments in space. It is believed that the James Webb Telescope will start its work in the next few months.
