Hubble revealed strange blue ‘spots’ of young stars

Several promising gas clouds that could be associated with faint dwarf galaxies have been discovered by the group ofastronomers led by Elizabeth Adams of the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy.

These gas clouds were thought to be associated with the Milky Way, and most of them probably are. But when the teams, with researchers like David Sand, an associate professor of astronomy at UArizona, or Michael Jones, a postdoctoral researcher at theArizona Steward Observatory and lead author of a paper on these clouds and deposited freely at arXiv — wanted to search stars associated with them and the dwarf galaxies, they held surprises.

Thus, an unprecedented association of young blue stars forming a group called SECCO1 and observed with telescope Hubble was actually in thegalaxy cluster de la Virgen Located at an estimated distance between 48 to 72 millionLight yearswas discovered by the famous French astronomer Charles Messier (1730-1817) known for creating the famous catalog of deep-sky objects that bears his name.

Two hypotheses about the origin of the mysterious “blue spots”

Therefore, we should see, as in the Milky Way, red dwarfs and yellow in abundance.

To resolve this paradox, two theories can be invoked, all of which involve masses gas ejected from a large galaxy. The first assumes the effect of tidal forces exerted by one large galaxy on another, forces that would therefore have ripped off gas. The other theory involves a galaxy rapidly colliding with a mass of hot plasma in the galaxy cluster. It can be shown that the collision produces a Pressure capable of quickly ripping a mass of gas out of the galaxy. We speak then of an effect called dynamic pressure stripping (ram pressure removal in English).

The researchers are more inclined to the second hypothesis because, to obtain blobs even though they are highly isolated from surrounding galaxies, they must move quickly, which is not compatible with the tidal mechanism hypothesis.
