Using the Milky Way as a template for understanding star formation in extreme environments across cosmological timescales
If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Titterington.
The Milky Way contains large reservoirs of gas with properties directly comparable to most of the known range of star formation environments in the Universe. As such, it is an excellent template for studying star formation across cosmological timescales. I will show how we have been using studies of gas in the Milky Way to learn about star formation in high-redshift clouds and galaxies and super star cluster formation. These results strongly challenge the universality of currently accepted star formation theories. I will discuss the implications of this for our understanding of star and planet formation as a whole, and how this may relate to supermassive black hole growth and feedback in the centre of galaxies.
