Astronomy: Magnetism drives star birth

Magnetic fields regulate how stars are born from massive clouds of interstellar gas.A team led by Francesco Fontani at the Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory in Florence, Italy, used high-resolution data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array telescope in northern Chile to create detailed maps of
