Herschel Legacy: Science Data, Discoveries & the People

The bubbles and wisps portrayed in this image by ESA's Herschel Space Observatory reveal great turmoil in the W3/W4/W5 complex of molecular clouds and star-forming regions. Located over 6000 light-years away, in the northern constellation Cassiopeia, it is one of the best regions in which to study the life and death of massive stars in our Milky Way galaxy.
