New results from ESO and IRAM suggest that massive stars form in the same way as their low-mass counterparts. In the Omega nebula, a young stellar object of more than ten solar masses is surrounded by a huge rotating disc with at least 100 solar masses of gas and dust. Part of the gas that falls onto the growing star is ejected perpendicularly to the disc, producing a bipolar jet and an hourglass shaped nebula.
