New jaw-dropping Hi-Def photo of Eagle nebula's "Pillars of Creation"

The iconic photo of the Eagle nebula’s “Pillars of Creation”, showing three “trunks” of gas and dust forming new stars, was taken in 1995 by the Hubble telescope. In 2014, after installation of a new camera with twice the resolution of the earlier one, a new hi-def photo of the Pillars of Creation has been released – and this one is just as draw-dropping as the original. Check it out above (the original photo is below).
