Discovery Of A Low-Mass Bipolar Molecular Outflow From L1014-Irs With The Submillimeter Array
MetadataShow full item record
Using the Submillimeter Array, we report the discovery of a compact low-mass bipolar molecular outflow from L1014-IRS and confirm its association with the L1014 dense core at 200 pc. Consequently, L1014-IRS is the lowest luminosity (L similar to 0.09 L-.), and perhaps the lowest mass, source known to be driving a bipolar molecular outflow, which is one of the smallest known in size (similar to 500 AU), mass (<10(-4) M-.), and energetics (e.g., with a M, force <10(-7) M-. km s(-1) yr(-1)).
