NASA James Webb Space Telescope’s mid-infrared view of the Pillars of Creation strikes a chilling tone.

Thousands of stars that exist in this region seem to disappear,

since stars typically do not emit much mid-infrared light,

and seemingly endless layers of gas and dust become the centerpiece.

The detection of dust by Webb’s Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) is extremely important

dust is a major ingredient for star formation.
