Blazing Blue New Stars
Seen in stunning detail and clarity is the star cluster, NGC 2547, imaged by the European Space Observatory’s Wide Field Imager at La Silla Observatory. The star cluster found in the constellation of Vela, is full of many young stars, blazing blue and bright. We recently got a very accurate measurement of the age of the universe from the Planck mission: 13.82 billion years old, which gives an awfully large scale of the evolution of the universe. When I say that these stars are between 20 and 35 million years old I’m sure you’re thinking they’re plenty old, but when I tell you that our sun is 4.6 billion years old and not even middle-aged yet, you will understand the epic scale on which stars live.
