Early Gemini North Results Feature Super Star Clusters, Details of Circumstellar Disks

Three massive dust cocoons seen in Gemini North observations taken by Kelsey Johnson with the University of Florida's OSCIR mid-infrared imager show "super star clusters" deep in the heart of the starburst galaxy Henize 2-10 that are less than a million years old, analogous to the first day of life for a human.
