Abstract

The Massive Young Stellar Cluster Study in Infrared and X-rays (MYStIX) is a project to develop a new census of pre-main sequence and OB members of ~20 star clusters associated with giant molecular clouds. The census is based on archived observations obtained with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, UKIRT’s UKIDSS Galactic plane survey, and NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. With advanced data analysis techniques and probabilistic algorithms to reduce contaminants such as field stars, we obtain the richest available census of cluster members. In addition, source-free X-ray images show 107 K plasma from shocked OB winds interacting with cold interstellar environments. MYStIX will address a variety of questions concerning the formation and early evolution of rich stellar clusters.
