CAPE CANAVERAL, FL -

A giant telescope in the Chilean desert has captured images of a star being born. The images from the ALMA (AL'-mah) telescope show material streaming from the baby star and glowing as it plows into the surrounding gas and dust. Astronomers say the star is 1,400 light-years away in the constellation Vela.
