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… 

The Formation of a Stellar Association in the NGC 7000/IC 5070 Complex: Results from Kinematic Analysis of Stars and Gas

We examine the clustering and kinematics of young stellar objects (YSOs) in the North America/Pelican Nebulae, as revealed by Gaia astrometry, in relation to the structure and motions of the

The Structure of the Young Star Cluster NGC 6231. I. Stellar Population

NGC 6231 is a young cluster (age ∼2–7 Myr) dominating the Sco OB1 association (distance ∼1.59 kpc) with ∼100 O and B stars and a large pre-main-sequence stellar population. We combine a reanalysis of

OVERVIEW OF THE MASSIVE YOUNG STAR-FORMING COMPLEX STUDY IN INFRARED AND X-RAY (MYStIX) PROJECT

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

IRAM and Gaia views of multi-episodic star formation in IC 1396A

Context. IC 1396A is a cometary globule that contains the Class 0 source IC 1396A-PACS-1, which was discovered with Herschel. Aims. We use IRAM 30m telescope and Gaia DR2 data to explore the star

Planck Cold Clumps in the λ Orionis Complex. III. A Chemical Probe of Stellar Feedback on Cores in the λ Orionis Cloud

Massive stars have a strong impact on their local environments. However, how stellar feedback regulates star formation is still under debate. In this context, we studied the chemical properties of 80

What’s Behind the Elephant’s Trunk? Identifying Young Stellar Objects on the Outskirts of IC 1396

Empirically, the estimated lifetime of a typical protoplanetary disk is <5–10 Myr. However, the disk lifetimes required to produce a variety of observed exoplanetary systems may exceed this
