Name[edit]

A good addition to this article would be an explanation of the name. "Pillars of Creation" is quite a fascinating title, but there's no hint as to why they have it. BrolleJr (talk) 10:42, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

There are a nurcery in top of each Pillar Thousands stars are borning all the time That´s a Creation Our System was created in that way —Preceding unsigned comment added by Anafigo (talkcontribs) 19:58, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

eroding at fingers of gas[edit]

What does that mean exatly? ChristianBxx 14:39, 3 February 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Christian75 (talkcontribs)

Einstein and Modern Physics announced wrong. Read it Here first[edit]

Wow. So we now can state as fact that events in space-time that have not happened for us (in our light cone) have happened? No wonder the lay public is confused when supposedly professional scientist talk rubbish. Either comment on how events which will occur in our future have objective reality or retract the idiocy of saying that the pillars "were" destroyed. There is no simultaneity in General/Special Relativity. Claiming that they don't exist "now" violates physics that is 100 years old.71.31.147.72 (talk) 14:58, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

That's OK -- the physics hasn't gotten here yet. BruceSwanson (talk) 16:10, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

The disappearing black boxes?[edit]

What happened to the "stair-shaped" black boxes in the upper right-hand corner of the image as referenced in the article? If you look at the image file, it has been altered in December 2013. Where did this new image come from? Anybody know? Is it a composite? A fake? What? TuckerResearch (talk) 01:15, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

And on January 5, somebody changed the picture back. So, my query is moot. TuckerResearch (talk) 04:06, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi Tucker, its pretty much all up to a design feature of one of Hubble's instruments. The idea is the odd corner has twice the definition as the others, which means it has a quarter of the viewing area. 74.140.196.211 (talk) 07:32, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

New picture[edit]

NASA has a new infrared picture. -- GreenC 16:24, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
