  • We present high-resolution optical HST Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) observations made with two slits crossing four of the optically brightest starburst clumps in the vicinity of the nucleus of M82. These provide Hα kinematics, extinction, electron density and emission measures. From the radial velocity curves derived from both slits we confirm the presence of a stellar bar. We also find that the super star cluster M82-A1 has a position and radial velocity consistent with it being… CONTINUE READING
