Scientists Found a Unique Exoplanet in an Evolved Binary

Astronomers used the Kepler Space Telescope to find an exoplanet (having a mass of about 13 Jupiters) that is orbiting a more evolved binary system, called KIC 10544976.   The Kepler Space Telescope of NASA made it possible for humanity to observe the exoplanets around young binary systems. This outstanding achievement was accomplished, for the…

Type IC Supernova was Caused by its Massive Star

Type IC Supernova was Caused by its Massive Star

Progenitor Stars are so massive that they can explode in a supernova despite losing their outer layers. A supernova is an event that follows the death of specific types of stars. It radiates more heat energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. The primary source of heavy metals is also labeled as the…

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…

Colliding Stars will light up the sky in 2022 and we will see it forever

“It’s a one-in-a-million chance when you can predict an explosion. It’s never been done before.” Molnar said. Astronomy has shown us tremendous wonders of nature and latest prediction of scientists suggest that it is ready to show us the first of its kind. A binary star system was under observation for years and researchers claim…
