The z=2.39 radio galaxy 53W002 lies in a cluster of Lyalpha emission-line objects and may itself be undergoing a major burst of star formation. CO (3-2) emission, at 102 GHz, was detected from 53W002 in 1997 by Scoville et al., who also reported a possible 30 kpc extension and velocity gradient suggesting a rotating gaseous disk. In this Letter, we present new interferometric CO (3-2) observations that confirm the previous line detection with improved signal-to-noise ratio, but show no evidence… CONTINUE READING
