The Dark Web of Star Formation Title SlideCornell University, Department of Physics Colloquium - Salpeter Lecture

Abstract:  Stars form in the darkest regions of our Galaxy. Barnard’s deep, wide-field, photographs revealed web-like structures within these regions 100 years ago. But, somehow, it took a century--until roughly now-- for us to realize that the detailed structure of Barnard’s “dark webs” might hold astrophysical secrets....

(When) Are Filaments Fundamental?, at Department Seminar, Department of Astrophysics, University of Vienna , Monday, April 3, 2017

Vienna Talk Title Page(When) Are Filaments Fundamental? (key, 572 MB), (pdf, 135 MB)

Abstract: As the resolution of imaging of the dense interstellar medium has improved, we have gone from a very blobby view, featuring interstellar “clouds" to a much more “stringy" view, featuring interstellar “filaments.” Some three-dimensional shapes in the ISM have a very limited set of possible origins: for example, disks...
