In this paper I provide the first ever observational evidence
of hierarchical fragmentation of a molecular cloud over five scales that are separated by five orders of magnitude. A molecular cloud of
over 10 pc size does not collapse as a whole in a monolithic pattern to make a group of stars, rather a wave of supersonic turbulence sets
density enhancements in certain regimes, and each over-dense region later contracts by gravitational instability. Turns out, each such
region further produces other over-dense regions, and this process is repeated in a hierarchical fashion until stars are born in the densest
regions. An outward pressure in clouds acts opposing the inward gravitational
collapse of a cloud...
