superwind

[′sü·pər‚wind]
(astronomy)
An energetic outflow of hot material along the minor axis of some starburst galaxies, detected in x-rays and the emission lines of hydrogen.

However, the southern and northern superwind plumes, normally so prominent as a bipolar outflow in Ha images, weren't visible other than as slight diffuse glows above and below the equatorial plane of the galaxy.
The research was published in the March issue of the journal Nature Astronomy under the title "The large-scale nebular pattern of a superwind binary in an eccentric orbit."

The Chandra X-ray observations of quasars 4C37.43 and 3C249.1 have provided the evidence of quasar ignition with an enormous amount of gas to be driven outward at high speed or a galactic superwind [19].
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Astronomers believe that they have found the answer to the mystery of a powerful 'superwind' which causes the death of stars.
Superwind surface/center assist winder with reverse winding capability winds up to 5.8-in.
Although there's a 30 million-solar-mass supermassive black hole (SMBH) in the center of M82, it's the ongoing starburst activity and subsequent supernovae in and around the core that create its famous bi-polar superwind. The superwind is the outflow extending north and south from the center of M82 and forming the lacy red wings seen in the image to the left.
In starburst galaxies, a superwind from these massive stars can clear a passageway through the gas in the galaxy, allowing the radiation to escape, the researchers said.
After studying the spectra of light from several more galaxies, they have concluded that each has a superwind containing an abundance of metals.
To provide low-tension control in blown film, Addex last year developed a high-end surface/gap winder called Superwind. It has a bank of 13 AC servo motors with direct torque control--six per winding station plus one for the input nip.
Addex's new SuperWind stacked winder, for example, makes up to 58-in, rolls, said to be a record for a stacked winder.
