Artist's Description

“IN ALL CHAOS THERE IS A COSMOS -
IN ALL DISORDER, THERE IS A SECRET ORDER”

Carl Jung

I felt so inspired to create this picture of my imaginative (and simplified) rendition of a Starburst Galaxy. I find it incredible to learn how stars are born in the universe – how solar systems are born and how stars die as a supa Nova – and from that death new stars and planets are born.

Starburst galaxy is a galaxy undergoing an exceptionally high rate of star formation, as compared to the long term average rate of star formation in the galaxy or the star formation rate observed in most other galaxies.
In a starburst galaxy, the rate of star formation is so large that the galaxy will consume all of its gas reservoir, from which the stars are forming, on a timescale much shorter than the age of the galaxy. As such, the starburst nature of a galaxy is a phase, and one that typically occupies a brief period during a galaxy’s evolution. The majority of starburst galaxies are in the midst of a merger or close encounter with another galaxy. Well-known starburst galaxies include M82, NGC 4038/NGC 4039 (the Antennae Galaxies), and IC 10.
