Cosmic fireworks reveal newborn stars (ESOcast Light 239)

A team of astronomers have released colourful new observations of nearby galaxies obtained with the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (ESO’s VLT) as part of the Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS) project. By combining these new observations with data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), in which ESO is a partner, the team is helping shed new light on what triggers stars to form. This ESOcast Light summarises the work.

The ESOcast Light is a series of short videos bringing you the wonders of the Universe in bite-sized pieces. The video is available in 4K UHD.
