Astronomers have spotted the most jam-packed cluster of young supermassive stars ever seen in the Milky Way galaxy, including hundreds of the most massive types of stars that are dozens of times heavier than our sun. According to researchers the light from these hefty newborn stars is heating the surrounding clouds of gas and dust, punching out a hollow shell into space that measures roughly 100 light-years wide. Mubdi Rahman, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto in Canada, hope that by studying these supermassive stars and the shell surrounding them, they hope to learn more about how energy is transmitted in such extreme environments.
Rahman, who led the study with his supervising professors, Dae-Sik Moon and Christopher Matzner, suggested the name “Dragonfish” to describe the cosmic scene, because the infrared image of the shell of gas resembles the undersea creature’s dark, gaping mouth and teeth, with bright spots corresponding to two eyes and a fin to the right.
