Why Orion is important?
• Is the nearest GMC and the most recent episode
of massive star formation
• Distance is fairly well known (~450pc)
• Background contamination is low
• Is the paradigm for typical star formation
• Is the paradigm for typical planet formation?

Understanding the IR emission of
photoevaporated disks
• Disks in HII regions are under the influence
of a complex radiation field
• HST data constrain the model parameters
(tilt angle with respect to the ionizing star
and to the Earth, distance from the ionizing
star, disk size…)
