Example text

They are called population I stars and are generally more blue and younger than the stars of the halo (population II stars). The disk is not homogeneous. Spiral arms can be observed inside the disk. They correspond to a maximum of the star and of the interstellar gas density. These arms rotate around the center with a period of about 108 yr. The so-called galactic clusters or open clusters are found in the disk of our own Galaxy. They are composed of a number of stars ranging from a few tens up to a few thousands: a well known example is the Pleiades cluster which consists of about one hundred stars and has a diameter of a few parsecs.

A SM(;) star stays approximately 108 yr on the main sequence (dashed line). collapse. The star goes on contracting in a thermostatic time (of the order of 10 7 yr). Its luminosity decreases while its external temperature remains approximately constant. The star is then entirely convective (like a boiling magma) and it may undergo violent events: the so-called 'T -Tauri stars' are presently in this phase of their evolution, as well as the 'flare stars', those very strange stars, for which the luminosity increases by a factor of 100 during a few seconds!

They generally emit or absorb at radio wavelengths. From the profiles of these lines, one can deduce for example the number of molecules in the line of sight in the case of a thin cloud, the temperature of the cloud, etc.... There are an increasing number of observations in radioastronomy which provide more and more information on our Galaxy and other galaxies. Besides the optical and radio domains, the modern techniques allow us to investigate the other wavelength ranges. The most energetic photons correspond to the range of}' rays (E > a few MeV), X-rays (E > a few keV) and the UV.
