Gigantic Cosmic ‘Candy Cane’ Viewed by Goddard-IRAM Superconducting 2-Millimeter Observer

The central zone of our galaxy hosts the Milky Way’s largest, densest collection of giant molecular clouds, raw material for making tens of millions of stars. This image combines archival infrared (blue), radio (red) and new microwave observations (green) from the Goddard-developed GISMO instrument. The composite image reveals emission from cold dust, areas of vigorous […]
