The Pillars of Creation are set off in a kaleidoscope of color in NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope’s near-infrared-light view. The pillars look like arches and spires rising out of a desert landscape, but are filled with semi-transparent gas and dust, and ever changing. This is a region where young stars are forming – or have barely burst from their dusty cocoons as they continue to form.
Along the edges of the pillars are wavy lines that look like lava. These are ejections from stars that are still forming. Young stars periodically shoot out supersonic jets that can interact within clouds of material, like these thick pillars of gas and dust. This sometimes also results in bow shocks, which can form wavy patterns like a boat does as it moves through water. These young stars are estimated to be only a few hundred thousand years old, and will continue to form for millions of years.

Shortly after buying the product, I changed my mind to buy the larger version. The rebooking was no problem at all, due to an extremely friendly customer service. As expected, the quality of the poster is excellent. Shipping to Germany also worked quickly. I would defiantly buy here again.
Incredible print quality, color depth and saturation, sharpness and detail, high quality print. Express delivery, very well packed and secured shipment. The owner is very nice and polite as well as the whole team. I would highly recommend! Order shipped to Ireland.
