Stellar nurseries in the nearby universe come in a surprising variety of shapes and sizes, according to a new cosmic survey.

Every galaxy's stars are formed from dense clouds of gas and dust called mollecular clouds, or stellar nurseries.

Previously, astronomers thought stellar nurseries were largely the same across the cosmos.

For the latest census, called the PHANGS project, scientists used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, or the ALAM telescope, located in Chile, to image 100,000 stellar nurseries in 90 different galaxies, all positioned within the nearby universe.

For the PHANGS census, researchers surveyed more than 100,000 stellar nurseries located in 90 different galaxies throughout the nearby universe.
