Star Ejected from Cluster
Animation of a young star, still surrounded by the disc in which it it forming, being ejected from a star cluster. This animation was a commission for astronomers at Sheffield University. When stars are born in cluster, interactions between members can lead to one or more of the stars being flung from the cluster. Previously it had been assumed that such stars simply wander off into space. But researchers at Sheffield have demonstrated that some ejected stars can pass from one star-forming region to another, as this animation shows. Commissioned by Dr Richard Parker of Sheffield University to accompany a press release.
