First Full 3D Model of Eta Carinae Nebula Created by Nasa Scientists

An international team of astronomers has developed a 3D model of a giant cloud ejected by the massive binary system Eta Carinae during its 19th century outburst. Eta Carinae lies about 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation of Carina … Continue reading
