Abstract: Including MIPS 24μm dust emission in the multi-band stellar population analysis, we reliably constrain the recent (≤ 100 Myr) star formation histories across the merging disks of the Antennae galaxies. We find two sequential star formation paths in the overlap regions, which we interpret as the imprint of the interpenetrating process of the two merging disks.
