Shine this nova for one day only!

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 one day; the fastest previous nova was the one we studied in 1991, the V838 Herculis, which faded away 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 It is located in Japan, and then many American astronomers and astrophysicists studied it. Usually, such events last between a week to a few months. these shiny explosions It appears in the sky as new starshence the term Nova who was chosen to appoint them.

It corresponds to a sudden and intense emission of white light

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.

As the material twists and turns as it moves toward the white dwarf, it forms an accretion 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. This is what the research team is trying to study. ” We are still trying to understand how the solar system formed, and where its chemical elements came from. S. Starrfield confirms. One of the things we will learn from this nova is, for example, the amount of generalities

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 it was also present when the nova was brighter, about 10 degrees.”Explains Mark Wagner, a researcher at Ohio State University. 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.
