ALMA results and the region seen in infrared light

This figure shows observations of the first hot core to be found outside the Milky Way with ALMA and a view of the region of sky in infrared light.

Left: Distributions of molecular line emission from a hot molecular core in the Large Magellanic Cloud observed with ALMA. Emissions from dust, sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitric oxide (NO), and formaldehyde (H2CO) are shown as examples. Right: An infrared image of the surrounding star-forming region (based on data from the NASA/Spitzer Space Telescope).
