Abstract

Prompted by the possibility that we have observed star formation triggered by globular cluster and dwarf spheroidal transits through galactic disks, we have examined kinematic evidence as to whether the superstar clusters in the Galactic bulge could have been formed from such transits. From their trajectores, we cannot exclude such a possibility. We note also that the high frequency of these transits may have generated rapid star formation at early times, and that remnant cluster cores may themselves nucleate further star formation. © 2008 Copyright International Astronomical Union 2008.
