Star formation in NGC 4038/4039

Abstract:

We performed near infrared integral field spectroscopy of several star clusters and the nuclei of the prototypical merger NGC 4038/39 ("The Antennae"). Near infrared (NIR) images covered both galaxies. The collision of the two gas-rich spiral galaxies has triggered a starburst obvious from a large number of young star clusters. ISO data suggest that the most active star formation occurs in the region where the two galaxy disks overlap. A significant fraction of the total bolometric luminosity...
