In April of this year, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope will be celebrating 24 years of observing. To celebrate this milestone, the observatory is releasing a brand new image of part of NGC 2174, otherwise known as the Monkey Head Nebula. This new Hubblecast episode showcases this beautiful image, which views a colourful region filled with young stars embedded among bright wisps of cosmic gas and dust.
This image is to be unveiled at the Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV conference, held at the prestigious Accademia dei Lincei in Rome from 17–20 March 2014.
