Thanks to massive deposits of gas and dust — the key star-making ingredients — the phenomenon known as NGC 3324 was a hotbed for starbirth several million years ago that produced several very hot-and-heavy stars that clearly stick out in a new image captured by the European Southern Observatory’s Wide Field Imager at the organization’s La Silla Observatory in Chile."
