The amazing image, captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, shows the planetary nebula NGC 3918, a brilliant cloud of colorful gas in the constellation Centaurus, 4,900 light-years from us. The image is a composite of visible and near-infrared snapshots taken with Hubble’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2.New simulations led by CRA Prof. Tamara Bogdanovic and her student Forrest Kieffer support the ‘disappearance’ of ancient red giant stars from the Milky Way.
