Abstract: H2O maser emission associated with the massive star formation region W49N were observed with the Space-VLBI mission RadioAstron. The procedure for processing of the maser spectral line data obtained in the RadioAstron observations is described. Ultra-fine spatial structures in the maser emission were detected on space-ground baselines of up to 9.6 Earth diameters. The correlated flux densities of these features range from 0.1% to 0.6% of the total flux density. These low values of correlated flux density are probably due to turbulence either in the maser itself or in the interstellar medium. © 2019 COSPAR

metadata.dc.description.sponsorship: The RadioAstron project is led by the Astro Space Center of the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Lavochkin Scientific and Production Association under a contract with the State Space Corporation ROSCOSMOS, in collaboration with partner organizations in Russia and other countries. This work is based on observations carried out using the 100-meter radio telescope of the MPIfR (Max-Planck-Institute for Radio Astronomy) at Effelsberg, 100-meter R.C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope of the Green Bank Observatory, which is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc., 26-meter radio telescope operated by Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory in Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa, 32-meter telescope in Medicina operated by INAF - Istituto di Radioastronomia and 32-meter radio telescope operated by Toruń Centre for Astronomy of Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Poland) and supported by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education SpUB grant.
