Alien stars caught in space with large plasma explosions


For the first time, scientists have noticed that plasma has leaked from the surface of a giant star.

The Observation, published May 27 in Nature Astronomy, is the first direct view of the removal of a coronary mass (CME) from a star other than our Sun. And observations show an extraordinary explosion of plasma from rocks: around 2.6 thousand pounds. (1.8 thousand kilograms) of extra large material – up to 18 million to 45 million degrees Fahrenheit (10 million to 25 million degrees Celsius). Note: Quintillion is equal to one billion billion.

CME is very human, but difficult to recognize. The earth, apparently relatively slow, becomes a small and cold mass, which follows bright star bumps – or still hot, fast moving, heavy plasma lines that are not completely separated from the star – from the star’s surface.

The CME mass is “about 10,000 times larger than the most massive CME in the space between the sun,” the researchers said.

And this scale is very much.

We know that our sun tends to do two things at once: emit a lot of radiation (called a torch) and emit CME (hot plasma bubbles). Astronomers know that stronger firing is usually associated with stronger CME. But so far there has been no direct reference to this relationship with other larger stars.

But HR 9024, a giant star, about 450 light years from Earth, produces a CME that coincides with the same flame and star size. This is proof that the rules for SMEs in our solar system elsewhere in the universe have various types of stars.

To remove the measurements, the researchers relied on a high energy spectrometer lattice instrument above NASA’s orbiting Chandra. This is the only human tool that can monitor star events on this relatively small scale in the solar system.

In addition to providing evidence of how CME behaves in relation to other stars, monitoring can help explain how star mass and velocity fall over time. When the CME masses escaped, he took part in the star’s inertia. CME is big enough to explain, because CME is similar, how stars shrink and slow down.
