      A remarkable view of our Galaxy has been obtained by Europe's billion-euro Herschel Space Observatory.

      The telescope was put in a special scanning mode to map a patch of sky.

      The images reveal in exquisite detail the dense, contorted clouds of cold gas that are collapsing in on themselves to form new stars.
