This 2010 image from the Herschel Space Observatory shows dust clouds associated with the Rosette Nebula, a stellar nursery about 5,000 light-years from Earth in the Monoceros, or Unicorn, constellation. Herschel collected the infrared light given out by dust. The bright smudges are dusty cocoons containing massive embryonic stars, which will grow up to 10 times the mass of our Sun. The small spots near the center of the image are lower mass stellar embryos. The nebula itself is located to the right of the picture, along with its massive cluster of stars.

这张2010年赫歇尔太空天文台拍摄的照片显示了尘埃与玫瑰星云的关系。玫瑰星云位于麒麟座,距离地球约5000光年。赫歇尔收集了尘埃发出的红外线。明亮的黑斑是含有巨恒星胚胎的布满尘埃的蚕茧,这些恒星的质量将是太阳的10倍。靠近图像中心的小点是质量较小的恒星胚胎。星云本身及其巨大的恒星群位于图片的右侧。

看到形成后质量是太阳的十倍我就放心了呢!挂的比我们的太阳早。
