A New View of the Tarantula Nebula To celebrate its 22nd anniversary in orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope released a dramatic new image of the star-forming region 30 Doradus, also known as the Tarantula Nebula because its glowing filaments resemble spider legs. A new image from all three of NASAs Great Observatories--Chandra, Hubble, and Spitzer--has also been created to mark the event.
