This Hubble picture shows a centrally bright object with jets, appearing like strings of beads, emanating
from both sides of center. (The other streaks of light running diagonally from He2-90 are artificial effects
of the telescope's optical system.) Each jet possesses at least six bright clumps of gas, which are speeding
along at rates estimated to be at least 375,000 miles an hour (600,000 kilometers an hour).
