Starbursts in Virgo Constellation

     Nowadays formation and evolution of galaxies are still not understood properly, this galaxies are called Starburst Galaxy. 

What is starburst Galaxy?

     Starburst galaxy have a region where most of the stars form at a breakneck rate and the galaxy is eating up the regular supply at a faster rate, that can be replenished.

Which galaxy is suitable for this type of Galaxy?

     NGC 4536 is such type of galaxy captured in the above image by Wide Field Camera of Hubble Space Telescope. It is located about 50 million light years away from Earth in the Constellation Virgo. It is a hub of extreme star formation. 

How the gases give birth to a new star?

     There are several factors that lead to ideal environment in which star formation can happen at a faster rate with massive and regular supply of gas. Galaxies having lots of gases passes nearby and collide with huge forces. This force forces the gases into a relatively small place to give birth to a new star.

Can the birth of star is predictable?

    Yes, the birth of star is predicatable. Star formation leaves many fingerprints. Nowadays Astronomers were able to predict where are the gas rich galaxies? where the star will born? Life span of stars? Technology development made easy to predict many astronomical events in our dark universe.
