This is the final edition of Interesting Astrophysics with me working as a professional astrophysicist, as I start a new job outside astronomy next week. If I have the spare time at home I may try to continue this series, but perhaps at a reduced rate.Nevertheless, there is some interesting stuff to look at. Molecular gas in starbursts is the subject of the Bothwell et al, Naylor et al, and Feruglio et al papers. In terms of winds, Muzic et al discuss possible/futher evidence of a wind within the central regions of our own galaxy (I still remain somewhat sceptical that the Milky Way hosts a true galactic wind), Kobulnicky & Martin present X-ray observations of the dwarf starburst Henize 2-10, Feruglio et al claim there is a hugely energetic molecular outflow in Markarian 231 that can only be power by an AGN, and Fischer discuss the geometry of the outflow in the central kiloparsec of the Seyfert 2 galaxy Mrk 573. Randall Smith and collaborators have posted two interesting X-ray line diagnostics papers, for all your X-ray spectroscopists out there.Galaxies and StarburstsAKARI infrared observations of edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 3079Mitsuyoshi Yamagishi, Hidehiro Kaneda, Daisuke Ishihara, Shinya Komugi, Takashi Onaka, ...
