The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) captured the attention of the world when it released its astounding image in 1995 of the Eagle Nebula (Messier 16) often called “The Pillars of Creation” (Fig. 1). It contained dark, billowing towers of gas and dust rising majestically into a background of glowing radiation. It told a story of new star formation.
