This large Chandra image shows the Carina Nebula, a star-forming region in the Sagittarius-Carina arm of the Milky Way a mere 7,500 light years from Earth. Chandra's sharp X-ray vision has detected over 14,000 stars in this region, revealed a diffuse X-ray glow, and provided strong evidence that massive stars have already self-destructed in this nearby supernova factory.

Science Degree

Students who love science but want the flexibility to explore a wide breadth of science often choose the Science major. It allows a certain degree of specialization but also permits study in areas like business, information science and technology, education, psychology, or other areas.
