NGC 3603 is a cluster of massive, hot stars surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust, which are the building blocks of new star formation.

When constructing his Catalogue of Nebulae and Star Clusters, even the renowned observer Charles Messier struggled to spot this globular cluster.

The star cluster Trumpler 14, one of the biggest collections of massive, bright stars in the Milky Way, is visible in this image taken with the Hubble Space Telescope.

Two clusters full of massive stars that might be on the verge of merging are seen in this Hubble Space Telescope image.

In the centre of a star-forming region in the Small Magellanic Cloud, one of the Milky Way's closest galactic neighbours, a bright, blue, newly formed star is blowing a cavity, as seen in this Hubble image.

The massive nebula NGC 3603 contains thousands of brilliant young stars.

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured several stages of a star's life cycle in a single view in this amazing image of the massive galactic nebula NGC 3603.
