THE BIRTH OF STARS AND PLANETARY SYSTEMS:  THE BIRTH OF STARS AND PLANETARY SYSTEMS Stephen E. Strom National Optical Astronomy Observatory 07 January, 2003 Overview of Presentation:  Overview of Presentation Theoretical overview Confrontation with theory: what we know and how we know it Current key questions Answering key questions Theory:  Theory Stellar Conception:  Stellar Conception A star’s life begins in darkness, in an optically opaque molecular cloud Shielded by dust and gas from galactic starlight and cosmic rays, the cloud cools In the densest clumps of molecular gas, gravity overcomes internal pressure: clumps contract A Collapsing Molecular Clump:  A Collapsing Molecular Clump Stellar Gestation:  Stellar Gestation Clumps are initially spinning as well a result of tidal encounters among clumps Spinning, collapsing clumps produce: a flattened envelope from which material flows toward a …. circumstellar disk, through which material flows toward a…. central, prestellar core (a 'stellar seed') Spinning Protostellar Core:  Spinning Protostellar Core Forming the Star-Disk System:  Forming the Star-Disk System Building a Full-Term Star:  Building a Full-Term Star Gas and dust transported: envelope accretion disk stellar seed Stellar mass builds up over time (~ 1 Myr) Accreting material arises from regions that rotate absent a way of slowing down the star, the star will rotate so rapidly that material is flung off the equator a star cannot reach ‘full-term’ absent spin regulation Stellar winds and jets act as ‘rotation regulators’ Building a Full-term Star:  Building a Full-term Star removes angular momentum A Star in Formation: Artist Conception:  A Star in Formation: Artist Conception Forming Planets:  Forming Planets Planets form in circumstellar disks Two processes may be operative: disk instabilities leading to rapid agglomeration of gas into giant (Jupiter mass) planets during disk accretion phase agglomeration of dust into km-size planetesimals buildup of earth mass solid cores via planetesimal collisions buildup of gas giants if enough disk gas is available Formation via Disk Instability:  Formation via Disk Instability Forming Jupiter Formation via Agglomeration; Collisions:  Formation via Agglomeration; Collisions Planetesimal swarm formed via collisions among small dust grains Growth of larger bodies via collisions Mature planets Star and Planet Formation Summary:  Star and Planet Formation Summary Molecular Cloud Rotating Clump Forming Star + disk Confrontation with theory:What we know and how we know it:  Confrontation with theory: What we know and how we know it Stellar Conception:  Stellar Conception Radio maps of molecular clouds reveal rotating pre-stellar clumps diagnosed via tracers of dense, cold gas: CO, CS Observations of multiple molecules provide temperature density clump mass kinematics: internal gas motions; rotation Clump self-gravity exceeds internal pressure Star-Forming Molecular Cloud:  Star-Forming Molecular Cloud 30 Light Years Ophiuchus Molecular Cloud (d ~ 500 light years) Opaque Molecular Clump:  Opaque Molecular Clump 0.2 light years Stellar Gestation:  Stellar Gestation Doppler analysis (mm-wave) of gas motions shows clumps are collapsing clumps are rotating Hubble Space Telescope observations reveal flattened envelopes opaque disks embedded within envelopes central star Doppler analysis (infrared) of gas motions shows gas accreting onto the central star Disks and Envelopes Around Young Stars:  Disks and Envelopes Around Young Stars Building a Mature Star:  Building a Mature Star Hubble space telescope observations reveal disks of solar system dimension around young stars Infrared observations show spectral signatures expected for accretion disks Radio observations: disk masses ~ solar system Doppler analysis (infrared) of gas motions shows gas accreting onto the central star winds emanating from star or inner disk Optical and infrared images reveal jets emanating from star-disk systems HST Observes Protoplanetary Disks:  HST Observes Protoplanetary Disks HST Observes Edge-on Disk:  HST Observes Edge-on Disk Diagnosing Disks in the Infrared:  Diagnosing Disks in the Infrared Accretion Disks and Stellar Jets:  Accretion Disks and Stellar Jets Implications for Planet Building:  Implications for Planet Building In combination, these observations suggest: accretion disks surround all forming stars disk masses and sizes are similar to our solar system As a consequence of the processes that give birth to stars, raw material for planet-building is in place Evidence for Planetesimal Building:  Evidence for Planetesimal Building Earth-like planets believed built via planetesimal collisions produce larger bodies produce small dust grains as a by-product of collisions Planetesimals not observed directly In solar system, evidence of collisions comes from cratering history (moon; other bodies) inclination of planet rotation axes Outside solar system, evidence of collisions come from light scattered earthward by small dust grains thermal emission from heated grains Dust grain population decreases with age similar to solar system record A Post-Planet-Building Disk:  A Post-Planet-Building Disk HST Observtions of an IRAS-discovered disk Disk Warping: Evidence of Planets?:  Disk Warping: Evidence of Planets? Evidence for Extrasolar Planets:  Evidence for Extrasolar Planets Reflex Doppler motions in parent stars periodic signals indicative of orbital motions velocity amplitudes + periods yield mass estimates More than 50 systems now known many contain multiple planets unexpected distribution of orbital distances unfavorable for survival of terrestrial planets Direct evidence of giant planet planet via eclipse gas envelope inferred from light curve shape Detecting Extrasolar Planets:  Detecting Extrasolar Planets Extrasolar Planetary Systems:  Extrasolar Planetary Systems Extrasolar Planet Transit:  Extrasolar Planet Transit Key Questions & Paths to Answers:  Key Questions andamp; Paths to Answers Current Key Questions: Planets:  Current Key Questions: Planets When do planets form? disk accretion phase? later, following accretion of disk gas? How diverse are planetary system architectures? are close-in (r andlt; 1 AU) Jupiter-mass planets favored? are planets in habitable zones common or rare?
