We are entering low earth orbit this week and spending time with the Hubble Space Telescope.The veil nebula is a supernova remnant of a star that died a mere 8,000 years ago and was more than 20 times the mass of our Sun. When stars like this go supernova, they give off a massive shockwave pulse that pushes material out at astronomical speeds.
