A section of the Carina Nebula, imaged by the Hubble Telescope. Each of the dark "pillars" of cold hydrogen and dust is about one light-year long, or about six trillion miles. Physicists say these are regions where new stars are born. The nebula is approximately 7,500 light-years from Earth, visible from the southern hemisphere.
