Stunning Hubble photo shows the brightest and youngest cluster of stars in the Galaxy
Bringing together some of the brightest stars in the entire Milky Way, a breathtaking image captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, was recently released by NASA and the ESA. The diamond-like stars depict the star cluster Trumpler 14, which gathers some of the most massive, hottest, and brightest stars in the Milky Way. It is located about ۸,۰۰۰ light-years from Earth, towards the center of the Carina Nebula, which is 7,500 light-years away.

At ۵۰۰,۰۰۰ years old, Trumpler 14 is – believe it or not – the youngest star cluster ever discovered.
