In this episode of the Hubblecast, we take a tour of the compact star-forming region Sh 2-106. Its hourglass shape is caused by the final, violent phases of a star's formation in the middle of the gaseous nebula. This episode explains some of the science behind Hubble's observations and brings them to life with detailed 3D computer visualisations.
