M82 The starburst galaxy is remarkable for its bright blue disk, webs of shredded clouds, and fiery-looking plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out of its central regions. Throughout the galaxy's center, young stars are being born 10 times faster than they are inside our entire Milky Way Galaxy. The fierce galactic superwind generated from these stars compresses enough gas to make millions of more stars

Original caption: Despite all efforts galaxy formation and evolution are still far from being fully understood. Fortunately, the conditions we see within certain galaxies — such as so-called starburst galaxies — can tell us a lot about how they have evolved over time. Starburst galaxies contain a region (or many regions) where stars are forming at…

La galaxie irrégulière du Cigare Une galaxie irrégulière est une galaxie qui ne montre aucune structure régulière ou discernable et qui pour cette raison est classée à part dans la classification de Hubble des galaxies La plupart des galaxies irrégulières sont des galaxies naines. Leur luminosité n'est pas affectée par leur forme irrégulière car elles sont souvent riche en jeunes étoiles brillantes, mais leur petite taille les rend difficile à détecter.

A Secluded Starburst Galaxy: This image was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and shows a starburst galaxy that lies some 300 million light-years away from us, and is currently experiencing an extraordinarily high rate of star formation - a starburst.  Normal galaxies produce only a couple of new stars per year, but starburst galaxies can produce a hundred times more than that. As seen face-on, the galaxy's spiral arms and the bright star-forming regions within them are clearly visible and…

Hubble image of NGC 1569 -NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has helped astronomers solve the mystery of the loner starburst galaxy, called NGC 1569, by showing that it is one and a half times farther away than astronomers thought.  The extra distance places the galaxy in the middle of a group of about 10 galaxies centered on the spiral galaxy IC 342. Gravitational interactions among the group's galaxies may be compressing gas in NGC 1569 and igniting the star-birthing frenzy.

Lonely Galaxy  Astronomers have long puzzled over why a small, nearby, isolated galaxy is pumping out new stars faster than any galaxy in our local neighborhood.    Now NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has helped astronomers solve the mystery of the loner starburst galaxy, called NGC 1569, by showing that it is one and a half times farther away than astronomers thought.    The extra distance places the galaxy in the middle of a group of about 10 galaxies centered on the spiral galaxy IC 342.
