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.
