Cosmic Kismet

The winding black crack
Rising out of cosmic dust
Set flame with new stars 


Recently, astronomers using NASA’s Spitzer
infrared telescope shooting 
  a “funny cosmic black crack” photo
at a distance of 11,000 light years from 
Earth in the constellation Sagittarius.
The serpentine“black crack” is
formed by dust in the universe,
but this meandering “black crack” covers 
as large as dozens of the solar system. 
Not only that, It is very likely pregnant 
with new stars in the cracks.
We can see from the photos, 
orange and yellow spots in those cracks
which will be forming new stars. 
The spots will launch red light star embryos,
its mass will be approximately about 20 to 50 times the sun.
