Secret origins of young star clusters traced to three families

Posted by in category: space

An international team of astronomers has uncovered the formation history of young star clusters, many of which are visible to the naked eye at night.

This remarkable research reveals that most nearby young star clusters belong to only three families, each originating from very massive star-forming regions.

The findings offer new insights into the effects of supernovae on the formation of giant gas structures in galaxies like our Milky Way.
