This image shows a region of the Milky Way closer to the galactic center than our own sun. Two massive star-formation areas can be seen at the left and center of the image, and are known as W43 and G29.9, respectively. These areas are churning out new stars of all sizes, including monsters that have ten times the mass of our sun.
These newborn large stars are catastrophically disrupting their original gas embryos by “kicking away” their surroundings and excavating giant cavities in the Galaxy. This is clearly visible in the fluffy chimney below W43 [European Space Agency].
