Abstract / Description:From a study of broad absorption line (BAL) + infrared (IR) + FeII quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) [using deep Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph Integral Field Unit (GMOS-IFU) spectroscopy], new results are presented for IRAS 04505-2958. Specifically, we have studied in detail the outflow (OF) process at two large galactic scales: (i) two blobs/shells at radius r ~ 1.1 and 2.2 kpc, and (ii) an external hypergiant shell at r ~ 11 kpc. In addition, the presence of two very extended hypergiant shells at r ~ 60-80 kpc is also discussed. From this GMOS study the following main results were obtained. (i) For the external hypergiant shell, the kinematics GMOS maps of the ionized gas ([OII], [NeIII], [OIII], Hβ) show a small-scale bipolar OF, with similar properties to those observed in the prototype of exploding external supershells: NGC 5514. (ii) Three main knots - of this hypershell S3 - show the presence of a young starburst. (iii) The two internal shells show OF components with typical properties of nuclear shells. (iv) The two blobs and the hypershell are aligned at PA ~ 131° showing bipolar OF shape at ~10-15 kpc scale. In addition, the more external shells (at ~60-80 kpc scale) are aligned at PA ~ 40° also with bipolar OF shape (perpendicular to the more internal OF). (v) A strong blue continuum and multiple emission-line components were detected in all the GMOS fields. The new GMOS data show a good agreement with an extreme + explosive OF scenario for IRAS 04505-2958, in which part of the interstellar medium (ISM) of the host galaxy was ejected (in multiple shells).
