Abstract:A VLA image of a pair of galactic chimneys emerging from the core of the starburst galaxy M82 is presented. The area of our images corresponds to the the base of the superwind from M82. The presence of these chimneys implies that the ejection of material into the halo does not occur smoothly from the starburst core of M82. Instead, very localised venting of hot gas is in evidence.
