Massive star formation

Requires Javascript enabled and Adobe Flash Player

Four views of the full simulation of massive star formation are shown in these animations. The top two frames show a broad region, while the bottom two frames provide a closer view of the star formation process. The frames on the left represent a polar view (the axis of rotation is perpendicular to the plane of the image), and frames on the right represent an equatorial view. Credit: Krumholz et al.
