Gone with the wind: Where is the missing stellar wind energy from massive star clusters?

Rosen, Anna L.; Lopez, Laura A.; Krumholz, Mark; Ramirez-Ruiz, E

Description

Star clusters larger than ∼103 M⊙ contain multiple hot stars that launch fast stellar winds. The integrated kinetic energy carried by these winds is comparable to that delivered by supernova explosions, suggesting that at early times winds could be an important form of feedback on the surrounding cold material from which the star cluster formed. However, the interaction of these winds with the surrounding clumpy, turbulent, cold gas is complex and poorly understood. Here, we investigate this...[Show more]
