Hubble Telescope Reveals a Scorpion - Like a cosmic chandelier, the dazzling lights of the star cluster Pismis 24 hang over the dusty clouds of NGC 6357, a nebula about 8,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Scorpius. (See a more recent view of Pismis 24.) The Hubble telescope’s high-resolution picture, taken in 2006, allowed astronomers to zoom in on the brightest star in the cluster, which had appeared to be 200 to 300 times the mass of the sun in images captured by older telescopes. Such a heavyweight would have broken the theoretical limit for stellar mass—no single star should be able to get bigger than 150 times the mass of the sun without becoming too unstable to survive. Hubble helped theorists breathe easier: The picture showed that the massive star is in fact two stars in a tight binary orbit. Each star is about a hundred times the sun’s mass.
