Extended Data Fig. 5: Composite infrared and X-ray views of the Orion region of massive star formation.

From: Disruption of the Orion molecular core 1 by wind from the massive star θ1 Orionis C

Extended Data Fig. 5

The [C ii] integrated intensity map is shown by the colour scale. The X-ray emission (from XMM-Newton) is outlined by a green contour. The hot gas probably entirely fills the bubble, but absorption by the Veil extinguishes the left side. The position of θ1 Ori C (RA(J2000) = 5 h 35 min 16.46 s, dec.(J2000) = −5° 23′ 22.8″) is indicated by a blue star.
