- The Orion Nebula is a beautiful sight in the night sky. One of the visionaries behind the Hubble Space Telescope, Dr. Robert O'Dell, has been studying Orion for more than 50 years. When he and his team focused Hubble on Orion, they discovered that the nebula is a giant stellar nursery giving birth to new stars and planets. Their groundbreaking research also revealed the three-dimensional shape of the nebula and the actual location where stars are formed. Based on this research, a dynamic CGI reconstruction of the Orion Nebula takes us on an exciting adventure deep inside this stellar nursery to witness stars and planets dramatically bursting into existence.
