An Intergalactic Carbon Footprint

This false color image taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud in a couple of wavelengths of infrared light. The LMC is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. The red regions indicate the presence of hot gas. The blue regions show cooler interstellar dust similar to ash from coal or wood-burning fires here on Earth.
