New images of starburst galaxy M 82 reveal multiple sources of its superwind

from National Astronomical Observatory of Japan

Like human beings, galaxies and the stars within them have a life cycle: They are born, grow and mature, and eventually die. Starburst galaxies are real "baby boomers," creating new, young stars at a rate faster than the combined speed of many Milky Way-like galaxies that are in a later phase of development. The Subaru Telescope has produced a new image of the interior of the famous starburst galaxy Messier 82 that reveals young star clusters in spectacular detail. The ultra-sharp image contributes to our understanding of this complex, young galaxy by showing that M 82's galactic windstorms emanate from many sites rather than from any single cluster of stars. more
