ALMA hears birth cry of a massive baby star

more »
Astronomers have determined how the enigmatic gas flow from a massive baby star is launched. The team used ALMA to observe the baby star and obtained clear evidence of rotation in the outflow. The motion and the shape of the outflow indicate that the interplay of centrifugal and magnetic forces in a disk surrounding the star plays a crucial role in the star's birth cry.
