NASA discovered a star, rushing with great speed

NASA открыли звезду, мчащуюся с огромной скоростью

The light tail of the pulsar stretches 13 light-years

Extraordinary speed can be caused by the fact that a massive star explodes and constantly “pushed” in space.

NASA scientists have discovered a very unusual and extremely magnetized neutron star, which with great speed moving through the Universe. On Thursday, March 21, reports Daily Star.

It is noted that the pulsar is moving so fast that it could cover the distance between Earth and the Moon in just six minutes.

Extraordinary speed, according to scientists, due to the fact that a massive star explodes and constantly “pushed” in space. The light tail of the pulsar stretches 13 light-years behind him. Therefore, due to this, astronomers were able to track the starting point, where an unusual space body began its motion.

The star called PSR J0002+6216. It was discovered by the telescope “DIN Observatory Fermi”.

“Further study of this object will allow us to better understand how such explosions can “accelerate” the neutron star to such high speeds,” said a scientist from the National radio astronomy Observatory of the USA in Socorro, new Mexico.

Previously, scientists for the first time saw the birth of double stars. This phenomenon was discovered at a distance of 5500 light-years from Earth.
