Super Star Clusters in M82

  • Robert W. O'Connell (a1)

Abstract

M82 is the nearest starburst galaxy. It contains two large systems of super star clusters, one being spawned today in the active starforming core, and one produced by an earlier starburst event which coincided with the last orbital passage of its neighbor, M81. The proximity of M82 makes it uniquely valuable for a wide range of studies of massive young clusters and their environments.
