Qizhou Zhang of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University will present the NRAO-Socorro Colloquium Announcement. This talk is titled “How to Make Massive Stars.” Massive stars dominate the appearance and the evolution of galaxies.  Despite their prominent role in shaping on the dynamics and chemistry of the interstellar medium, their birth is still poorly understood. In the Milky Way, most young massive stars are found in parsec-scale molecular clumps with a cluster of companion stars. In this talk, Zhang will focus on the early stages of massive star formation: the formation of massive cores. He will review recent studies that begin to shed light on how molecular clumps may collapse and fragment. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center.
