Explanation: NGC 6302, the Bug Nebula, displaying the “z-pinch? so familiar to plasma cosmologists. The pinching of a plasma cloud into a narrow “neck? is just one of numerous indicators of high-energy electric currents. The star at the center of the pinch is hidden from view by a donut-like cloud or torus, another pattern typical of plasma discharge instabilities.
