Baby (stars) on board! ✨ 🍼 ✨

In this image, @NASAHubble peeks into a dusty stellar nursery where massive stars are born, nestled in the constellation of Gemini. At the center of the image, a massive star is forming and blasting cavities through the clouds with a pair of powerful jets, extending to the top right and bottom left of the image. Light from this star is mostly escaping and reaching us by illuminating these cavities, like a lighthouse piercing through the storm clouds.⁣
