Abstract:The detection of hydrogen radio-recombination maser lines (RRLs) toward MWC349A in the year 1989 opened the chance to place constraints on the kinematics of an ionized circumstellar disk around a massive star. Since then, a significant number of observations have allowed improving our understanding of this source to the point that we have established that its ionized wind launching occurs at a distance of ~24 au as claimed by disk wind models. On the other hand, this field of study has undergone considerable d… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
