Computer Simulation of Multiple Star Formation in Turbulence

3 July, 2014 / Read time: 1 minute

Computer simulation of multiple star formation in turbulence for a period of 27,000 years.

Newborn stars are in complex motion and their influence ripples across the surrounding environment in a wave-like formation and makes an extended gas structure which looks like a bow. The width of the movie corresponds to 3000 au.
