Star outburst observations explained by Western astronomer's star formation model Early star formation contains eruptive events, which to date have been predicted on time scales of over thousands of years. Western astronomer Shantanu Basu and longtime colleague Eduard Vorobyov developed a gravitational instability and fragmentation model which predicts these bursts on much shorter time scales. This has now been observed in star V346 Normae.
