Infrared observations of the VISTA telescope in Chili have found newly formed stars in the center bulge of our galaxy. These new stars are hiding behind dust clouds in a part previously thought to only contain older stars.

This is the kind of thing that should be headline news on all news outlets and cable stations. Fascinating, as Mr. Spock would softly exclaim.

I wonder if this can in some way relate to the old and supposedly discredited "steady state theory"? You, know, the one where Bondi and Gold suggested the universe was forever renewing itself.
Interesting, thanks for the heads up.

Well, if you consider the fact that science previously thought that star forming regions only existed in and around the spiral arms it's actually pretty exciting stuff.

I like like em short and sweet. And thnx, I like my young too.

This isn't twitter.

Did you by any chance read the text that appeared when you started this thread? It said if you don't have more to say than the simple notice then you probably don't have enough to start a new thread. You certainly said less than the simple notice.

The image of the milky way in the article is great, putting our galaxy into a visual context that is easier to mentally interpret, maybe it's the added textures. I'd never seen it that way before.

Thank you for sharing this, that the astronomers are able to detect individual stars in a well of pure galactic light is an amazing exhibition of what our technology can do.
