Maser discoveries in the GASKAP-OH Pilot Survey
GASKAP-OH, the Galactic ASKAP Spectral Line Survey studying the hydroxyl (OH) molecule has obtained promising results from its first Pilot Survey data. In just a small portion of the galactic plane, 45 OH masers were detected, more than half of which were discovered for the first time. Each of these masers highlight the locations where stars are forming or dying and provide information about these processes. The image above shows the locations of the detected masers -- with the spectra for two of the newly discovered masers shown in yesterday's ADAP.
