Feedback from Massive YSOs and Massive Stars

Article Open Access

Abstract

Massive stars are powerful sources of radiation, stellar winds, and supernova explosions. The radiative and mechanical energies injected by massive stars into the interstellar medium (ISM) profoundly alter the structure and evolution of the ISM, which subsequently influences the star formation and chemical evolution of the host galaxy. In this review, we will use the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) as a laboratory to showcase effects of energy feedback from massive young stellar objects (YSOs) and mature stars. We will also use the Carina Nebula in the Galaxy to illustrate a multi-wavelength study of feedback from massive star.
