Celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope’s 16 years of service, NASA and the European Space Agency have issued new high-resolution photos of the starburst Messier 82 galaxy. The images show the birth of hundreds of young stars at the core of the so-called Cigar Galaxy. Wired News’ Hubble’s Sweet 16 gallery also contains some of the most spectacular Hubble shots from recent years. All images are courtesy of NASA. Visit the ESA’s Hubble site for more info.
