Flight Through Orion Nebula in Visible and Infrared Light

By combining the visible and infrared capabilities of the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, astronomers and visualization specialists from NASA’s Universe of Learning program have created a spectacular, three-dimensional, fly-through movie of the magnificent Orion nebula, a nearby stellar nursery. Using actual scientific data along with Hollywood techniques, a team at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Caltech/IPAC in Pasadena, California, has produced the best and most detailed multi-wavelength visualization yet of the Orion nebula.

  1. The "Celestial Hunter" My wife got me a star from the International star registry in between Orions belt and Bellatrix. Under the name Alienated Antic. 👍👍

  2. You make it look like a thick cloud. Nebulae are so diffuse and faint you won't see any of that if you got close to it. The only reason you see it like that is through a long exposure which the human eye doesn't have.

  3. Dark matter out and inside no dark matter Dustand hot gas energy Itself. No birth solar only in galaxy can birth solar and dust colors not birth solar, dust and gas color redwith yellow, orange can make birth solar.

  4. That was AWESOME, Any chance of this being done in Google Cardboard, it would be amazing to float through and just sit back and relax while looking around.
    Top job everyone, love it.
    Peace Out To All
    P.S. Everyone like this to show our support and maybe they might do it in VR or Cardboard lol.

  5. Why does it ALWAYS look like a CGI Movie/images ?? why cant it Ever be real images?,
    i want to see what that looks like in real-time real-life actual photos doesn’t Nasa have Satellites equipped with HD Cameras?.
    I thought those satellites had hi tech gear on them? No? anyone know what type of Cameras are equipped on these satellites?.. or why there never seems to be Real-Time videos or Real-Life Actual Image Quality ?
    Ive searched Everywhere for actual Photos or Videos,but found none..anyone know of any that i can look at? Or a site ? thnks.

  6. I’ve searched Every Space agency website,but cant seem to find any Actual Photos? They all seem to be Cgi looking, or Computer Sims? Wtf? All i want is an Actual Photo Or Videos of Space,Planets,Etc.. thats all..i thought all those satellites had Hi-Tech Cameras on them? No? Am i wrong about this? Anyone know alittle more about all this or ever asked this question? Or ever wondered why it seems to always look like CGI-Imagery??.. HD-4K exists dont it ? I mean I Personally have a Nikon 4k HD camera.. and My photos dont look like they are CGI… idk.. just a thought

  7. Visual composition is perfect! Mixing the i-red with the visible light spectrum is unreal but very cool! For me the only thing less positive was the sad music. Do not get me wrong, it is a beautiful song, but not for these type of images! Should have been something more avangard!Thank very much it is fantastic!
