Where stars are born?

This mosaic image is the best wide-angle view of the galaxy with strong star formation, Messier 82 (M82), resulting in the history of space exploration. The galaxy is remarkable for its bright blue disk, wisps of clouds, forming a web of fiery feathers and bright flashes of hydrogen, resulting in the explosion of its central regions.

Around the center of the galaxy young stars are born in the 10 times faster than our entire Milky Way galaxy, which causes a huge concentration of young stars embedded in gas and dust in the galaxy’s center. Fierce galactic strong wind or air flow generated from these stars compresses enough gas to make millions of big stars.

In the galaxy M82, young stars are crammed into small but massive star groups. The latter, in turn, accumulate a dozen, to produce vivid "patches" or star-group in the central parts of M82. Group in group clusters can be distinguished only by the clear images made the Hubble Space Telescope (Nubble). Most pale, white objects scattered around the body of M82, which looks like fuzzy stars are actually individual star cluster age of about 20 light years and contains more than a million stars.

Quick ratio star formation in this galaxy eventually will be self-limiting. When star formation becomes too vigorous, it (the galaxy) poglatyvaet or destroy the material needed to create more stars. A galaxy with a powerful starburst will subside, probably in a few tens of millions of years.

The observation was made in March 2006 by the Hubble Advanced Camera designed for Research Channel wide area. Astronomers assembled this composite mosaic of six images, combining them with four colored filters that capture starlight from visible and infrared wavelengths, and the light of the bright hydrogen filaments.
