Description:

This Hubble Space Telescope image captures the chaotic activity on a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust reminiscent of a craggy fantasy mountaintop surrounded by wispy clouds. New stars buried inside the pillar cannot be seen in this image because they are hidden by a wall of gas and dust but they are firing off jets of gas that can be seen streaming from the towering peaks. In the accompanying educational activity, In Search of ... Star Formation, students investigate star formation through a level 1 inquiry activity using the images and text from the lithograph and other resources. A level 1 inquiry activity can help prepare students to become independent thinkers.
