Starburst Clumps in the Cigar Galaxy – M82

Stars in the Center of the Cigar Galaxy are being born 10 times faster than they are inside our entire Milky Way Galaxy. These young stars are crammed into tiny but massive star clusters – lots of stars in a small place! These, in
turn, congregate by the dozens to make the bright patches known as “starburst
clumps”.
