The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) view of stellar birth. The Herbig-Haro 211 system, seen here in a near-infrared camera (NIRCam) image, is only a few thousand years old, yet it produces highly supersonic jets of hot molecular material that stretch into the surrounding cloud. The young star itself is still embedded in gas and dust and is located at the centre of the dark lane.
