Young Outflows and Disks with ALMA (YODA)
Research Project , 2016 –

The Young Outflows and Disks with ALMA project was initiated in 2015. Initially, we observed carbon monoxide (CO) in the young TMC1A protostellar system at the highest possible spatial resolution with ALMA. The obtained images showed CO and dust on spatial scales of only 6 au and revealed the presence of a disk wind. The REALM project is now being continued with the support from the Swedish research council and in 2017, we continued the long baseline observations with ALMA. The primary objectives of the research project are:

- Constrain the launching mechanism responsible for the mass-loss observed during the earliest stages of star formation
- Directly constrain the initial conditions for planet formation.
- Determine how stars accrete matter.
