Older talk[edit]

Proposal for new template listing:

- pre-main sequence

    • T Tauri star
      • Classical T Tauri star
      • Weak line T Tauri star
    • Herbig Ae/Be star
    • Herbig-Haro object
    • Zero age main sequence star
  • Theoretical Concepts
    • Initial mass fuction
    • Jeans instability
    • Kelvin-Helmholtz mechanism

CarpD said that, I believe. Rursus 22:45, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Three objections to this proposal (which otherwise is good):
  1. a wiki nav template shouldn't link outside like the links [http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951006.html Bok globule] / [http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951005.html Cometary globule] do, but the original template contains in-wiki links,
  2. Protostar isn't a class of objects, it's a theoretical concept, more specifically a theoretical model that happens to be fairly well supported by observations,
  3. the same thing regards HII regions vs. Solar Nebula, HII regions are actually observed objects, while the Solar Nebula is a theoretical concept.

I know, those were examples. In wikipedia, Cometary Globules don't exist. Thanks, CarpD 7/04/07.

I reverted to uncollapsed[edit]

I reverted the template to the uncollapsed form from this version, where the navigation template subsections are all visible. They were changed to appear collapsed, which I didn't like as it reduced ease of navigation. See Template talk:PhysicsNavigation#The collapsed subsections look terrible) where I asked for a collapsed=show parameter. (also this talk page did not align fully left for some reason so I wrapped the above in a div) -Wikianon (talk) 22:10, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

OK, this was my fault. I didn't notice your comment. I'll fixely the PhysNav. template so it wholly uncollapses when desired. (Sheliak (talk) 06:32, 5 March 2008 (UTC)).


I just reorganized the list here... if anyone objects, please discuss here. Just a few thoughts I had on possibly tweaking it some more....

  • The "objects" list seems to perhaps better correspond to "stages of star formation."
  • The nebular hypothesis seems to have a lot of overlap with the star formation article, so I don't know if we should separate it out.
  • The interstellar medium isn't a single object, per se, so it's a bit of an oddball....but would make sense as a "stage of star formation"
