How Nature Shapes the Birth of Stars
Using state of the art computer simulations, a team of astronomers from the University of Bonn in Germany have found the first evidence that the way in which stars form depends on their birth environment. The team, based at the University of Bonn in Germany, publish their results in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
“With this work, we might have uncovered the long expected systematic differences in the star formation process,” said team member Pavel Kroupa. The astronomers now plan to use further simulations to study the effect of these differences on the long-term evolution of globular star clusters.
