Hubble Space Telescope Captures Fascinating 'Dense Cores' Where New Stars Are Born

By Aahil

The Hubble Telescope is back in action. The observatory has taken an image of the 'dense core' known as CB 130-3.

The core CB 130-3, which belongs to the constellation Serpens, is 652 light-years away from Earth.

You must be curious what dense cores are. Here is the answer: a dense core is a cosmic dark cloud.

How do new stars evolve? It is simple to understand that if these dense cores build up enough mass.

So they will eventually collapse under the force due to their own gravity, reaching the temperature and density needed to ignite the fusion of hydrogen.

A dense object deep inside CB-130-3 is on the verge of becoming a star. we'll have to wait and see

Whether the power of the James Webb Telescope can capture that is unfortunately not visible in the image.

The image shows that the density of CB 130-3 is not constant. The outer edge of a dark cloud is less densely packed and more wispy.

CB-130-3 is considerably denser towards the center with enough material to block the light completely.

Stars in the background are affected by the gas and dust that make up CB 130-3 in terms of both brightness and color.
