Weekly Science Update

A false-color image of the jet HH211 ejected from a young star (not seen) as taken in the infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. SAO astronomers discovered very highly excited, shocked OH emission near the left tip of the outflow; the nebula IC348 is seen above. The fiducial line shows a distance of one-twentieth of a light-year.
