The starburst galaxy Messier 82
This HaLRGB image portrays the turbulent starburst galaxy Messier 82 in Ursa Major with its filamentary outflows of ionized hydrogen. This emission is suggested to be due to stellar winds caused by massive energetic young stars (as well as supernovae resulting from their death) being born at a high rate within the galaxy.
