The massive star forming complex G333
by Maria Cunningham (UNSW)
Color-composite image of the massive star forming complex G333, observed as part of a large project with the 22-m Mopra radio telescope near Coonabarabran, NSW. The colors depict the following temperature and density sensitive molecular line tracers: HCN tracing warm gas (around 20 to 40 K), HCO+ tracing warm gas with outflow/infall, and N2H+ tracing really cold gas (less than 20 K).
