Did supernovae help form Barnard’s Loop?
”We believe that shells and loops in Orion, the Per-Tau shell, and the Local Bubble are the first of many discoveries relating new star formation to old supernovae,” Foley says. ”Supernovae sweep up gas and dust into dense clumps, leading to the perfect birthplaces for new stars. The Orion region, rich in both star formation and supernovae, is the latest example of that.”
The new Orion results support the theory that when massive stars end their lives as supernova explosions, they create conditions ripe for the formation of new stars. The team is hard at work analyzing other regions in the Milky Way galaxy in 3D, and using numerical simulations, to see just how common supernova-driven star formation really is.
”Thanks to the work of many incredible scientists, 3D data will transform our understanding of star formation in our galaxy,” Foley notes. ”It may be much more explosive than we even imagine!”
”It may be much more explosive than we even imagine!”
Yes yes yes.
Kaikki vetävät voimat ovat huuhaata 😃
Todellakin, paljon PALJON räjähtävämpää on avaruudessa koko ajan laajenevien / räjähtävien tähtien syntyminen 😃
