|Star formation in extreme galactic environments|
|by Deidre Hunter (Lowell Observatory)|
|Knots in GALEX FUV images of dwarf galaxies
reveal that young star clusters are found out to many disk scale lengths. These
are examples of star formation in extremely low gas density, low metallicity
environments that are not understood with current models. |
