Where Stars Come From

A cosmic womb, if you will: The Orion Nebula, birthplace of stars. A Nebula is a nice name for the debris left over after a massive supernovae. Of course, as with all things, this act of destruction in turn creates stars by the bushel, as well as swell pictures for us wicked smart apes to ogle. It's all a big cycle, you see, a dialectic the French or Post-Grad might say, creation - destruction = recombinations leading to new creations, then new destructions of course, as Big Mary's Wheel keeps on turning. Unless you're talking about the Singularity which created our Universe, there are no beginnings or ends, only endless transformations.
