  • Rich young stellar clusters produce Hii regions whose expansion into the nearby molecular cloud is thought to trigger the formation of new stars. However, the importance of this mode of star formation is uncertain. This investigation seeks to quantify triggered star formation (TSF) in IC 1396A (a.k.a., the Elephant Trunk Nebula), a bright rimmed cloud (BRC) on the periphery of the nearby giant Hii region IC 1396 produced by the Trumpler 37 cluster. X-ray selection of young stars from Chandra X… CONTINUE READING
