The Massive Young Star-Forming Complex Study in Infrared and X-ray (MYStIX) seeks to characterize 20 OB-dominated young clusters and their environs at distances d ⩽ 4 kpc using imaging detectors on the Chandra X-ray Observatory, Spitzer Space Telescope, and the United Kingdom InfraRed Telescope. The observational goals are to construct catalogs of star-forming complex stellar members with well-defined criteria and maps of nebular gas (particularly of hot X-ray-emitting plasma) and dust. A…

AGE GRADIENTS IN THE STELLAR POPULATIONS OF MASSIVE STAR FORMING REGIONS BASED ON A NEW STELLAR CHRONOMETER
A major impediment to understanding star formation in massive star-forming regions (MSFRs) is the absence of a reliable stellar chronometer to unravel their complex star formation histories. We
NO EVIDENCE FOR PROTOPLANETARY DISK DESTRUCTION BY OB STARS IN THE MYStIX SAMPLE
Hubble Space Telescope images of proplyds in the Orion Nebula, as well as submillimeter/radio measurements, show that the dominant O7 star θ 1 ?> Ori C photoevaporates nearby disks around
X-ray and optical spectroscopy of the massive young open cluster IC 1805
Context. Very young open clusters are ideal places to study the X-ray properties of a homogeneous population of early-type stars. In this respect, the IC 1805 open cluster is very interesting as it
