KALYPSO Project Description
High-mass stars are important components in the ecology of the interstellar medium (ISM)
and the evolution of galaxies. They profoundly change the chemical and physical composition, and the energy budget, of the ISM. When young they disrupt parent molecular clouds, driving
powerful outflows and emitting enormous UV fluxes that ionize HII regions.
When old they explode as supernova and enrich the ISM with heavy elements, thereby
influencing chemical and thermodynamic processes, and planting seed material from
which planets can ultimately form.
