July - The cool clouds of Carina
Observations made at submillimetre wave- lengths with the APEX telescope — shown here in orange tones, combined with a visible-light image — reveal the cold dusty clouds from which stars form in the Carina Nebula. This site of violent star formation, which plays host to some of the highest- mass stars in our galaxy, is an ideal arena in which to study the interactions between these young stars and their parent clouds.
