(CNN) NASA has come out with a new image that could become one of its most iconic ever.
The Hubble Space Telescope revisited the so-called "Pillars of Creation," which the space agency describes as "three giant columns of cold gas bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young, massive stars in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, or M16."

The previous photo of these pillars, taken in 1995, went on to stand out from all the rest of NASA's space images, the agency said. "The Hubble image is so popular that it has appeared in movies and television shows, on T-shirts and pillows, and even on a postage stamp."
