A 100 pc ELLIPTICAL AND TWISTED RING OF COLD AND DENSE MOLECULAR CLOUDS REVEALED BY HERSCHEL AROUND THE GALACTIC CENTER
Thermal images of cold dust in the Central Molecular Zone of the Milky Way, obtained with the far-infrared cameras on board the Herschel satellite, reveal a similar to 3 x 10(7) M-circle dot ring ofExpand

G0.253 + 0.016: A MOLECULAR CLOUD PROGENITOR OF AN ARCHES-LIKE CLUSTER
Young massive clusters (YMCs) with stellar masses of 104-105 M ☉ and core stellar densities of 104-105 stars per cubic pc are thought to be the "missing link" between open clusters and extremeExpand

HST/ACS Hα imaging of the Carina Nebula: outflow activity traced by irradiated Herbig–Haro Jets★
We report the discovery of new Herbig-Haro (HH) jets in the Carina Nebula, and we discuss the protostellar outflow activity of a young OB association. These are the first results of an Hα imagingExpand

Candidate super star cluster progenitor gas clouds possibly triggered by close passage to Sgr A
Super star clusters are the end product of star formation under the most extreme conditions. As such, studying how their final stellar populations are assembled from their natal progenitor gas cloudsExpand

A CLUSTER IN THE MAKING: ALMA REVEALS THE INITIAL CONDITIONS FOR HIGH-MASS CLUSTER FORMATION
G0.253+0.016 is a molecular clump that appears to be on the verge of forming a high-mass cluster: its extremely low dust temperature, high mass, and high density, combined with its lack of prevalentExpand

Spitzer Space Telescope observations of the Carina Nebula: The steady march of feedback-driven star formation
We report the first results of imaging the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) onboard the Spitzer Space Telescope, providing a photometry catalog of over 44,000 pointExpand

An unbiased survey for dense cores in the Lynds 1630 molecular cloud
An unbiased, systematic survey for dense cores within the L1630 (Orion B) molecular cloud has been completed. This survey provides the first complete census of dense (n greater tha 10,000/cu cm)Expand

What controls star formation in the central 500 pc of the Galaxy
The star formation rate (SFR) in the Central Molecular Zone (CMZ, i.e. the central 500 pc) of the Milky Way is lower by a factor of > 10 than expected for the substantial amount of dense gas itExpand

Explosive Outflows Powered by the Decay of Non-hierarchical Multiple Systems of Massive Stars: Orion BN/KL
The explosive Becklin-Neugebauer (BN)/Kleinman-Low (KL) outflow emerging from OMC1 behind the Orion Nebula may have been powered by the dynamical decay of a non-hierarchical multiple systemExpand
