The Tarantula Nebula and its HUGE stars

We've posted two videos in the past week or so about the epic Tarantula Nebula (aka NGC 2070).

The nebula is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, the larger of the Milky Way's satellite galaxies.

One of our experts on Deep Sky Videos, Professor Paul Crowther, is an expert on the nebula.

The first video we posted dealt with the massive stars in its core.

The second video deals with a runaway star which has "escaped" the central region.
