Irish scientists help unveil mystery of how stars are formed
Study has, for first time, measured total mass and energy from jet driven by massive protostar
The red contours indicate cm wavelength radio emission from ionised gas produced by shocks. The white cross indicates the position of the massive protostar
New insights into how stars are formed have been discovered by a team of Irish and international researchers.
Researchers from the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies (DIAS) have led a study that has, for the first time, measured the total mass and energy from a jet driven by a massive protostar.
