An extreme high-velocity bipolar outflow in the pre-planetary nebula IRAS 08005-2356.


Abstract (from CDS):

We report interferometric mapping of the bipolar pre-planetary nebula IRAS 08005-2356 (I 08005) with an angular resolution of ∼1"-5", using the Submillimeter Array, in the 12CO J = 2-1, 3-2, 13CO J = 2-1, and SiO J = 5-4 (v = 0) lines. Single-dish observations, using the SMT 10 m, were made in these lines as well as in the CO J = 4-3 and SiO J = 6-5 (v = 0) lines. The line profiles are very broad, showing the presence of a massive (>0.1 M), extreme high velocity outflow (V ∼ 200 km/s) directed along the nebular symmetry axis derived from the Hubble Space Telescope imaging of this object. The outflow's scalar momentum far exceeds that available from radiation pressure of the central post-AGB star, and it may be launched from an accretion disk around a main-sequence companion. We provide indirect evidence for such a disk from its previously published, broad Hα emission profile, which we propose results from Lyβ emission generated in the disk followed by Raman-scattering in the innermost regions of a fast, neutral wind.
