S106 Datacube: Credits

The data was obtained by doing a multi-field mosaic observations of the HCO+ emission from S106 with the BIMA Array. Much of the molecular gas surrounding this star-forming region is caught up in "bipolar outflow," an outward flow of gas in mainly two opposite directions away from the central region of star formation. The 3-D rendering of the cube allows the researchers to more easily recognize kinematic signatures in data and understand how the gas is moving within the outflow. Research and Data Visualization:
