The magellanic inter-cloud project (magic). I. evidence for intermediate-age stellar populations in between the magellanic clouds
The origin of the gas in between the Magellanic Clouds (MCs)—known as the "Magellanic Bridge" (MB)—is puzzling. Numerical simulations suggest that the MB formed from tidally stripped gas and stars in a recent interaction between the MCs. However, the apparent lack of stripped intermediate- or old-age stars associated with the MB is at odds with this picture. In this paper, we present the first results from the MAGellanic Inter-Cloud program (MAGIC) aimed at probing the stellar populations in...[Show more]
