Hubble Space Telescope’s Zoom Through the Lagoon Nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope has turned 28 years old—and everyone has received a birthday gift. To honor the groundbreaking, traveling documentarian, NASA has released a zoom and flythrough video of the Lagoon Nebula. About 4,000 light-years away, the Nebula centers around the million-year-old Hershel 36 star—which happens to be “200,000 times brighter and eight times hotter than Earth’s sun.” It’s an exquisite area with a space landscape that truly captivates.
