Caption: Figure 3.

Local gravitational vector fields g loc for W51 e2 (left panel) and e8 (right panel) overlaid on dust continuum contours (blue). Vectors are displayed with a uniform length, giving the direction but not the absolute magnitude of local gravity. Vectors are selectively shown for the locations where polarized emission is detected and displayed at half of the synthesized beam resolution.
