Pleintinger, Moritz M. M.; Siegert, Thomas; Diehl, R; Fujimoto, Yusuke; Greiner, J; Krause, Martin G. H.; Krumholz, Mark

Description

Context. The diffuse gamma-ray emission of 26Al at 1.8 MeV reflects ongoing nucleosynthesis in the Milky Way and traces massive-star feedback in the interstellar medium due to its 1 Myr radioactive lifetime. The morphology and dynamics of the interstellar medium are investigated in astrophysics through 3D hydrodynamic simulations in fine detail as there are few suitable astronomical probes available. Aims. We aim to compare a galactic-scale hydrodynamic simulation of the Galaxy's...[Show more]
