Zooming in on the bright star cluster NGC 3293 (fulldome)

This zoom full-dome video starts from a broad view of the Milky Way and takes the viewer on a journey to the bright star cluster NGC 3293 in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). This spectacular object would have been just a cloud of gas and dust about ten million years ago, but as stars began to form it became the bright group we see here. Clusters like this are celestial laboratories that allow astronomers to learn more about how stars evolve.
