How do Magnetic Fields Affect Star Formation and High-Energy-Density Lab Experiments?

The Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula.

These are two Hubble space telescope images of the 'Pillars of Creation' in the Eagle Nebula. The left image captures a visible light view, showing an opaque cloud of gas and dust. On the right, near-infrared light penetrates much of the gas and dust, revealing stars behind the nebula and hidden away inside the pillars. (Images: via NASA, ESA, Hubble Heritage Project.)
