Once available only for the enjoyment of the sighted, the Hubble Space Telescope’s dramatic glimpse of the Carina Nebula, a gigantic cloud of gas that bustles with star-making activity, can now be “seen” by blind students, as well. A touchable, 17-by-11-inch color image of the nebula that’s been embossed with lines, slashes, and other markings allow the visually impaired to feel what they cannot see and form a picture of Carina in their minds.
