    The bursts of star formation have produced dramatic effects on M82. A collective out gassing of stellar winds from thousands of new stars and supernova driven shock fronts has caused the ejection of ultra-hot gases (mostly hydrogen and nitrogen at temperatures of several million degrees) which extend out from the galactic core some several thousand light years. The superheated gases which arise from the combined particle winds of ...
