So when two galaxies collide, this generates an excess of dense gas that collapses into stars-and both galaxies experience a starburst.
"Despite ALMA's great sensitivity to detecting starbursts, we saw nothing, or next to nothing -- which is exactly what we hoped it would see," said lead investigator Dr.
LEOMINSTER - The summer season starts with a bang as fireworks fill the sky during the 17th annual Starburst 2009.
This could explain why the cores of elliptical galaxies, proposed to arise from collisions, just as starbursts do, are rich in heavy elements, Mihos says.
But the most prominent manifestation of the trend is the pink Starburst. Last spring, the company's limited-edition packs of "All Pink" Starbursts were so successful that in April, the brand coupled a relaunch with a full line of merchandise, including pink jackets, sweatshirts and patterned scarves.
"So, the fact that we saw any such quasars implies that there must be more quasars hidden in dusty starbursts. To push this to the extreme, maybe every dusty starburst galaxy hosts a quasar and we just cannot see the quasars," Fu said.
Grouped into the topics of the Milky Way and the local group, triggering of starbursts, dwarf galaxies, molecular gas, nuclear gas and AGN, neutral hydrogen, stellar populations, ionized gas, mergers of high and low luminosity, and the distant universe, each paper concludes with a transcript of the discussion that followed its presentation.
The surfaces shimmer with garlands cut out of seed catalogues and jewel-like eyes excised from fashion spreads; there are bright chains of painted dots, spangles of pills in graduated sizes, precisely aligned starbursts of marijuana leaves.
If so, these black holes, like the starbursts, are young.
Starbursts also light up galaxies in the early universe, making them bright enough to study.
Papers from a June 2003 conference reflect the latest observations of the neutral interstellar medium (ISM) in nearby and distant starburst galaxies and represent current research in neutral atomic and molecular gas associated with starbursts.
