Our work on star clusters of the SMC as a Nature highlight

Our recent work on the identification of star clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), following the initial work on the Large Magellanic Cloud, was selected by Nature as a research highlight [1]. The distribution of the star clusters and their ages can reveal us how the two galaxies interact and when. It seems that the majority of the stars were born after this interaction.
