The fastest nova has just been discovered!

It was even visible toeye Naked: Scholars report in a report fromAmerican Astronomical Society Discovery Nova The fastest ever! That was just over a year ago: it appeared in the sky on June 12, 2021, and then faded away just a day later. “It was only about a day; the fastest previous nova was the one we studied in 1991, the V838 Herculis, which faded out in about two or three days.”explains Summer Starrfield, the professor and astrophysicist at the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration.

It was discovered by chance, by A astronomer Amateur located in Japan, then studied by many American astronomers and astrophysicists. Usually, such events last between a week and a few months. these shiny explosions It appears in the sky as new starshence the term Nova who was chosen to appoint them.

The latter is actually the remains of a dead star: white dwarfs that are created after star death Not too bulky, when you run out of fuel. Then it goes through a phase red giantWhere the upper layers extend. Then its outer layers pop out, leaving only the core of the star, which is compressed and transformed into a white dwarf.

When its matter twists and turns as it moves toward the white dwarf, it forms an a Accumulation disk. Inside this disk, the material is so intensely heated, that it turns into plasma, and thus into Gas ionized. This ionized gas heats up. Much.

However, they, like supernovae, can lead to Construction of solar energy systems, similar to ours.

We are now fairly certain that a large portion of the lithium found on Earth resulted from these types of eruptions. »

In addition to its speed, the researchers note another property: the light and energy we receive from the V1674 Herculis pulse. Every 501 seconds a visible oscillation occurs both in the visible range and in the 1895 invented by Wilhelm Röntgen

Even today, a year later, this pulse continues, always with the same regularity. “The most unusual thing is that this oscillation was observed before the explosion, but was also present when the nova was brighter, by about 10 Ingredients »Mark Wagner, a researcher at Ohio State University explains. In the future, the team intends to look into the cause of the explosion, so the processes that lead to a big explosion thermonuclear explosion Similar to this, especially with regard to the case Duration So short.
