White Dwarf Stars are Turning into Crystals

White Dwarf Stars are Turning into Crystals

Astronomers from the University of Warwick have found direct evidence suggesting that the white dwarf stars are solidifying into crystals. A white dwarf star in a dense stellar core remnant, which is mostly made up of electron-degenerate matter. All the luminosity of these stars come from the stored thermal energy as there is absolutely no…

Hubble Uncovers a Lot of New Globular Star Clusters

Scientists may have moved a step closer towards finding the origin of galaxies. Using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered a huge cluster of stars about 300 million light-years away. The number of these star clusters reach a total of a whopping 22,426. Globular star clusters are more common than full-scale galaxies which makes…

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…

150th Anniversary of Helium gives us an Amazing Opportunity to have a look at its Numerous Benefits

Critical medical applications like NMR and MRI were simply impossible without the second most abundant element of the universe. Helium was discovered by Jules Janssen, a French Astronomer, on 18th August 1868. He found this noble gas during a total solar eclipse and gave it the name ‘Helium’ after the source of its discovery, the…
