Take a 3-D Tour of a Space Cloud Full of Baby Stars #OrionNebula

This new video gives you the sense of flying through the Orion Nebula. Via National Geographic:

By combining visible and infrared images taken by the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, and adding a sprinkle of Hollywood stardust, a team led by Frank Summers of the Space Telescope Science Institute crafted this three-minute journey through the faraway cloud. It takes you through the gossamer shell of the nebula and into the cavernous region where stars are born, and where pinpricks of light cluster like eggs in a nest.

Located some 1,344 light-years away, the Orion Nebula can be seen by the unaided eye. Still, it’s not every day the cosmos can be experienced in three dimensions like this. After all, even the most magnificent, evocative images from our best telescopes are flat.
