Red Giant Star
The Hypergiant red star VY Canis Majoris, one of the largest stars in our galaxy, is going to die soon, new study suggests. Will it impose some risks to our planet as it dies in violent supernovae explosion?
Astrophysicists from the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics have discovered a group of ancient red giant stars which should be old but they still look young when their ages are inferred using asteroseismology.
Astronomers have discovered the largest yellow star ever observed in our galaxy, the Milky Way, which is 1,300 times larger than our sun and about 1 million times brighter than it, according to measurements made with a Very Large Telescope Interferometer of the European Southern Observatory in Paranal, Chile.
The universe is a place filled up with surprises and things that seem strange to us. However astronomers are hard to impress because they expect to everything including a star into another star.
The biggest star known so far is dying, and eventually will explode, astronomers have announced, according to AFP. By using a telescope from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, astronomers have studied the star W26.
