As the Hubble Space Telescope achieves the major milestone of two decades on orbit, NASA released a stunning new picture.

This brand new Hubble photo is of a small portion of one of the largest known star-birth regions in the galaxy, the Carina Nebula. Towers of cool hydrogen laced with dust rise from the wall of the nebula. The image captures the top of a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars.
