Secrets from Stellar Nurseries: The Early Lives of Star Clusters

Alison Sills (Professor)
We know that stars are born out of large clouds of gas and dust. Most stars are born in groups. But what happens next? Do the siblings stick together, moving through the universe together all their lives, or do they disperse and move out of their birth neighbourhood as soon as they can? What influence do they have on their nursery cloud? What if another family of stars is born right next door -- do they get together? Using a combination of observations and simulations, I will explore what we know about the early evolution of star clusters.
