In his second story, Ka Chun talks about the 25th Anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope. NASA released an image of Westerlund 2 in celebration of the occasion. This giant cluster of about 3,000 stars is named for Swedish astronomer Bengt Weterlund, who discovered the grouping in the 1960s. The cluster resides in a raucous stellar breeding ground known as Gum 29, located 20,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Carina.
