The HH 24 complex harbors five collimated jets emanating from a small protostellar multiple system. We have carried out a multiwavelength study of the jets, their driving sources, and the cloud core hosting the embedded stellar system, based on data from the Hubble Space Telescope, Gemini, Subaru, Apache Point Observatory 3.5 m, Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, and Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescopes. The data show that the multiple system, SSV 63, contains at least 7… 

First Large-scale Herbig–Haro Jet Driven by a Proto-brown Dwarf

We report the discovery of a new Herbig–Haro jet, HH 1165, in SOAR narrow-band imaging of the vicinity of the σ Orionis cluster. HH 1165 shows a spectacular extended and collimated spatial structure,

Radio Continuum Maps of Deeply Embedded Protostars: Thermal Jets, Multiplicity, and Variability

We have carried out a deep, 3.6 cm radio continuum survey of young outflow sources using the Very Large Array in its A configuration providing subarcsecond resolution. The seven regions observed are

X-Ray and Infrared Observations of Embedded Young Stars in L1630

The HH 24-26 star-forming region in the Lynds 1630 (L1630) dark cloud in Orion contains a remarkable collection of rare Class 0 and Class I protostars, collimated molecular and ionized jets, and a

CO Outflows from Young Stars: Confronting the Jet and Wind Models

We have mapped the CO J = 1-0 emission from molecular outflows associated with five young stellar systems of class 0 to class II/III using the BIMA array and the FCRAO 14 m antenna. The systems, VLA

The VLA/ALMA Nascent Disk and Multiplicity (VANDAM) Survey of Perseus Protostars. VI. Characterizing the Formation Mechanism for Close Multiple Systems

We present Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array observations of multiple protostar systems in the Perseus molecular cloud, previously detected by the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array. We

Dust Emission from Protostars: the Disk and Envelope of HH 24 MMS

High-resolution imaging of the protostar HH 24 MMS at wavelengths of 7 mm and 3.4 mm shows the dust emission to originate from two components: an unresolved disk and an extended envelope. The

Disintegrating Multiple Systems in Early Stellar Evolution

An analysis of the multiplicity of 14 sources driving giant Herbig-Haro flows has revealed an observed binary frequency between 79% and 86%, of which half are higher order multiples. These sources

A violent outflow of high-velocity gas is one of the first manifestations of the formation of a new star. Such outflows emerge bipolarly from the young object and involve amounts of energy similar to

A triple protostar system formed via fragmentation of a gravitationally unstable disk

Observations of dust and molecular gas emission reveal a disk with a spiral structure surrounding the three protostars in the triple protostar system L1448 IRS3B that appears susceptible to disk fragmentation at radii between 150 and 320 astronomical units, consistent with models for a protostellar disk that has recently undergone gravitational instability, spawning one or two companion stars.
