      Observations of the Ca II triplet lines in giant stars in these clusters show that NGC and NGC have metallicities on the Zinn and West scale of [Fe/H] = ± and ± Our Milky Way galaxy resides in a relatively low-density region of the Universe, part of a "local group" of galaxies but apparently not bound to the nearby Virgo cluster. Scientists study the distribution and growth rate of galaxy clusters to understand the overall structure and evolution of the Universe.

    A galaxy is a large system of stars, gas (mostly hydrogen), dust and dark matter that orbits a common center and is bound together by gravity -- they've been describe­d as "island universes." Galaxies come in many sizes and shapes. We know that they're very old and formed early in the evolution of the universe. Galaxy clusters contain hundreds to thousands of galaxies. There is no fixed demarcation between a galaxy group and a galaxy cluster. However, in general, galaxy clusters not only have many more members than galaxy groups, but they also have a much higher concentration of galaxies in space. This means that galaxy clusters can be recognized out.

    A new millimeter wavelength study of massive clusters from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has found good agreement with current ideas about galaxy cluster evolution. Galaxy clusters have long been recognized as important laboratories for the study of galaxy formation and evolution.

As with the author’s recent books Extreme Explosions and Under a Crimson Sun, the complex topic of star clusters is broken down and made accessible with clear links to other areas of astronomy in a la.

The Orion Nebula (also known as Mess M42, or NGC ) is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion.

It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1, ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to ce: 1,±20 ly ( pc). Star formation is the process by which dense regions within molecular clouds in interstellar space, sometimes referred to as "stellar nurseries" or "star-forming regions", collapse and form stars.

As a branch of astronomy, star formation includes the study of the interstellar medium (ISM) and giant molecular clouds (GMC) as precursors to the star formation process, and the study of protostars.

Some stars may have formed even before the first star clusters and galaxies came into existence. Some galaxy-galaxy collisions triggered massive bursts of star formation, and some of these led to the formation of black holes.

In that rich, crowded environment, black. Eduardo Bica's research works with 2, citations and 3, reads, including: An Updated Small Magellanic Cloud and Magellanic Bridge Catalog of Star Clusters, Associations, and Related Objects. The latest results emerging from these Galaxy-scale surveys are reviewed.

New insights into cloud formation and evolution, filaments and their relationship to channeling gas onto gravitationally-bound clumps, the properties of these clumps, density thresholds for gravitational collapse, and star and cluster formation rates are discussed. Willis's 32 research works with citations and 1, reads, including: The XXL Survey XXV.

Cosmological analysis of the C1 cluster number counts. In the context of the evidence on evolution of stars, you can estimate the _____ of a star cluster by observing the distribution of the points that represent its stars in the Hertzsprung-Russell (H-R) diagram.

Age. the orbital motions of the stars within the galaxy. A large proportion of these systems interact and alter the structure and evolution of their components, leading to exotic objects such as Algol variables, blue stragglers and other chemically peculiar stars, but also to phenomena such as non-spherical planetary nebulae, supernovae and gamma-ray bursts.

This review discusses some of the recent observations of moderate to high redshift clusters. A consistent picture of galaxy evolution in clusters appears to be emerging, which includes a population of galaxies which formed early in the cluster history, as well as field galaxies which have had their star formation truncated upon falling into the.

There are three types of star clusters: globular, open, and associations. Globular clusters have diameters of 50– light-years, contain hundreds of thousands of stars, and are distributed in a halo around the Galaxy.

Checking Out the Theory The H–R diagram of stars in a cluster changes systematically as the cluster grows older. The. star clusters would tell you they are the building blocks of galaxies, that most if not all stars form in clusters and that globular clusters have witnessed all steps in the evolution of their host.

Yet, the formation and evolu-tion of star clusters remains a poorly known topic. The reason for this situation probably lies in the multi-scale. Studies like this of galaxy clusters and protoclusters at various ages may help astronomers figure out how galaxies’ childhood environment affects their evolution and properties.

Evidence suggests. A galaxy is any of the systems of stars and interstellar matter that make up the universe. Many such assemblages are so enormous that they contain hundreds of billions of stars. Galaxy clusters are gravitationally bound groupings of galaxies, numbering from the hundreds to the tens of thousands.

Abell is located at a distance of million light-years from Earth. It is one of the most populous galaxy clusters in the nearby universe, and one of 93 clusters that were the subject of an August NOAO press release.

Galaxy clusters contain mostly red elliptical galaxies, as seen in this view of the central region of Abell With our chemical evolution model and a set of empirical yields, we suggest that a strong dependence on the star formation history and metallicity-dependent stellar yields of s-process elements can substantially modify the slope of the [s/α]-[Fe/H]-age relation in different regions of the Galaxy.

Conclusions: Our results point towards a non. B) Their orbits around the Galaxy resemble those of comets. C) They formed first as the Galaxy formed. D) At almost five billion years old, our Sun must belong to this older Population. E) The globular clusters are their most obvious groupings. Galaxy - Galaxy - Evolution of galaxies and quasars: The study of the origin and evolution of galaxies and the quasar phenomenon has only just begun.

Many models of galaxy formation and evolution have been constructed on the basis of what we know about conditions in the early universe, which is in turn based on models of the expansion of the universe after the big bang (the primordial.

The differentiation between the types of galaxies was thought to have been the result of initial conditions. If lots of angular momentum were present, a disk galaxy was produced. If initially there was little angular momentum, all matter became stars during the collapse phase, resulting in an elliptical galaxy.

Another way is to study stars and star clusters. We know how stars are formed, how their fusion reactions start, their efficiency level, and how they die.

It can be difficult however when a star. More information: Discovery of a new fundamental plane dictating galaxy cluster evolution from gravitational lensing. The Astrophysical Journal.
