Nice pic.

The Magellanic cloud "Blue Globulars" have been known for a long time. The difficulty was previously in resilving the stars and producing a colour magnitude diagram.

R136 appears to be the youngest of these "Blue globulars" and has apparently only just formed (Tarantula nebula).

This may have a lot of bearing on the formation of the globular cluster contingent in the giant elliptical galaxies formed by collision & merger of 2 or more giant spirals, many of which should date to the time of the merger.

Have a nice day: Ag
