ABSTRACT The major physical processes responsible for shaping and sculpting pillars in the clouds sur-rounding massive stars (i.e. the ‘Pillars of Creation’) are now being robustly incorporatedinto models quantifying the ionizing radiation from massive stars. The detailed gas dynamicswithin these pillars can now be compared with observations. Our goal is to quantify the gasdynamics in a pillar being sculpted by a nearby massive star. To do this, we use the CO, 13 CO,and C 18 O J=1-0 emission… CONTINUE READING
