'Great Eruption' Nebula Visualization is 3D Printable | Video

From 1838 to 1945, the star Eta Carinae spewed nearly 40x the Sun’s mass, creating the Homunculus Nebula. A team of astronomers have now created a high-res 3D model of the 2-lobed cloud of gas and dust. It can be 3D printed with this file: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a010000/a011500/a011568/Eta_Car_Homunuculus_3D_model.zip
