Shedding Light on the Power of M 82's Superwinds
Tokyo, Japan (SPX) Jan 25, 2013
An international team of astronomers, led by Dr. Kazuya Matsubayshi (Kyoto University), has discovered that outflows of gas from starburst galaxy M 82 (see Note 1 for a reference figure) collide with a "cap" of gas clouds 40,000 light years away from the galactic disk. Shockwaves (Note 2) from M 82's central starburst region are the most likely source of the bright clouds within the cap. The large light-gathering power of Subaru Telescope's 8.2-m mirror and its ability to produce highly detailed i ... read more
