NGC 3603 is a cosmic factory where stars form frantically from the nebula’s extended clouds of gas and dust. Located 22 000 light-years away from the Sun, it is the closest region of this kind known in our Galaxy, providing us with a local test bed for studying the intense star formation processes.
