The New 30 Doradus

  • Nolan R. Walborn (a1) and Rodolfo H. Barbá (a1)

Abstract

Recent optical and infrared studies of 30 Doradus have revealed a more complex and diverse star-formation history than previously recognized. Five spatially and/or temporally distinct populations have been identified, including a new generation currently being triggered by the R136 cluster in its surroundings. HST/NICMOS observations of the latter provide insights into the phenomena of triggered massive-star formation, as well as the global structure and evolution of the starburst region.
