About the image

The Astrophysics Group at the University of Exeter is one of the largest groups in the UK studying star formation and extra-solar planets. This image, taken from one of the radiation hydrodynamical calculations of star cluster formation published in Bate (2014, MNRAS, 442, 285), shows temperature distribution in a 500 solar-mass molecular cloud that has produced a cluster containing a couple of hundred stars.
