How do stars form
The Rockets cruised through their two first round series with relative ease as did the Golden State Warriors. They are now on a collision course in the Western Conference Finals, a series basketball fans have been waiting for since November. Their clash has been so anticipated, some are calling it the "real" NBA Finals, owing to the strength of teams in the Western Conference.The Rockets took three of the four games the teams played this season including a gripping opening night game in Oakland. Remarkably, the four teams that played on opening night are the final four standing at the end of the season. But, how do the teams match up now that they are deep into the playoffs and the Warriors seem to be healthy again?Chris Paul vs. Stephon CurryOn paper, the former MVP versus Paul might seem to be advantage Warriors, but Paul has been terrific in the playoffs and Curry, as good as he was against the Pelicans, is still getting fully healthy.

Ever since they were discovered about two decades ago, submillmetre galaxies or SMGs have fascinated astronomers. They are the brightest galaxies in the universe, forming about 2 billion years after the Big Bang. Their brightness has long sparked debate about how they formed. "Twenty years ago, people said, 'Oh wow, they are so much brighter than anything else. What are they?'" Haverford College's Desika Narayanan said. "The prevailing theory was that they are a collision of two galaxies. The reason is that galaxy merges form a lot of stars all at once and, when stars form, a galaxy get really bright." But there were problems with that theory, including the fact there just aren't enough of these mergers to make up this population of SMGs. "The numbers don't really work out," Narayanan said. Now, Narayanan and his colleagues have published a study in Nature that offers evidence that supports a competing theory known as smooth accretion hypotheses in explaining the formation of these … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo So how do the universe’s brightest galaxies form?
