Description:

The lithograph contains a Hubble Space Telescope image that shows M82, an edge-on galaxy, undergoing a frenzy of star formation. The text explains the possible causes of the galaxy's unusual appearance and star-birth activity. In the accompanying educational activity, In Search of ... Starburst Galaxies, students investigate the cause of the starburst, a rapid rate of star formation, through a level 1 inquiry activity using the images and text from the lithograph and other resources. A level 1 inquiry activity can help prepare students to become independent thinkers.
