A Famous Nova was actually not a Nova

Nova Vulpeculae 1670 is merely a collision between two dwarf stars. The term ‘Nova (Novae)’ refers to a transient astronomical event that causes sudden appearance of a bright, apparently new star which gradually fades away over several weeks. In some cases, the fading process may take many months. All the novae, which have been observed…

The Line Between a Planet and a Star is Much Finer than you might Think

The Line Between a Planet and a Star is Much Finer than you might Think

Scientists may have to reconsider the mass that a celestial object needs to have to initiate nuclear fusion. The term ‘Stellar Evolution’ refers to the process by which a star changes over the course of time. The lifetime of a star is inversely proportional to its mass. Consequently, massive stars live for a few million…

Tokamak Energy wants to introduce Nuclear Fusion Power by 2030

Tokamak Energy wants to introduce Nuclear Fusion Power by 2030

We might get electricity from Nuclear Fusion much earlier than we anticipated. Nuclear Fusion refers to a reaction where two or more nuclei fuse into each other to produce one or more atomic nuclei and subatomic particles like protons. Massive amounts of energy are released during this process and this accounts for the difference in…

Unlimited Energy Is One Step Away From Reality? Plasma Allows Nuclear Fusion To Happen

Mankind is one step ahead in achieving the nuclear fusion. Considering this a source of the future, nuclear fusion can provide an unlimited amount of energy without pollution, through a process similar to that taking place inside the Sun. Magnetic field, intense pressure and heat is needed for the cores of the lighter chemical elements…
