Stars that go out with a whimper – magnificent Hubble image of the nebula IC 289, a former star like our Sun that is now just a cloud of ionised gas being pushed out into space by the remnants of the star’s core, visible as a small bright dot in the middle of the cloud.

Complement with the finest photographs from the Hubble, one of the 250 essential milestones of space history

The ideal morning.
