Astrophysicists have discovered one of the fastest stars in our galaxy

According to astronomers, most stars slowly rotating around the galactic center with a speed of 100 kilometers per second. However, this rule there are exceptions. Over the past few decades scientists have discovered in our galaxy of 20 superfast stars. The latest such discovery is the object PSR J0002+6216. The speed of its movement is 1130 kilometers per second or more than four million miles per hour. Enough to 6 minutes to get to the same moon. According to astronomers from the us National radio astronomy Observatory, who opened it, when you save these dynamics, in the distant future, the object will escape from our galaxy.

At the moment it is one of the fastest discovered stars in our milky Way. The results of the observation object is published in the journal the Astrophysical Journal Letters. A brief press release about the opening is on the website of the National radio astronomy Observatory.

The object PSR J0002+6216 (J0002 for short) is a pulsar – a type of “dead” neutron stars left after supernova explosion. It is located in the constellation Cassiopeia, is about 6.5 thousand light years from Earth. Unlike most similar objects it is not inside the remains of a supernova or in a relatively clean area of open space and close to the cocoon of an exploded star.

This unusual feature of the “dead star” made the American team of astrophysicists under the leadership of Dale Freila detailed study of the pulsar and the cloud of hot gas of CTB 1, located approximately 53 light-years. The first data and images from the VLA radio telescope has brought a lot of interesting and unexpected discoveries.

Scientists have found that PSR J0002+6216 moves with incredibly high speed — 1130 kilometers per second. For this indicator, it is second only to star US 708, which is also located in the milky Way. Its speed is 1200 kilometers per second.

On its trajectory, astrophysicists were also able to establish the age of PSR J0002+6216. Pulsar appeared in the center of CTB 1 is approximately ten thousand years ago when the progenitor has exhausted the reserves of hydrogen and helium to sustain thermonuclear reactions and supernova exploded.

According to the team of American astrophysicists, this observation once again questioned the assumption that only supermassive black holes can eject stars from galaxies.

As noted by Dale, the original pulsar was moving slower than the expanding cocoon of gas it gave rise to the supernova, then the rate of expansion of gas and dust rather quickly decreased due to interaction with the interstellar medium. Under assumptions of astronomers it happened about five thousand years ago, what can talk big, bright “tail” left behind a pulsar, after his release from the cocoon of a supernova.

What causes these stars to become space outlaws? According to one of the assumptions to such incredible speeds they are accelerated due to the gravitational interaction with the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. According to another previously these stars could be in the so-called close binary systems where both stars are very close to each other. During the transition one of the stars in supernovae of the second can literally eject from the system.

Frail with colleagues hope that further observation and PSR J0002+6216 will help to determine the exact cause that led to the release of the pulsar from the milky Way.

“We still have a lot of work to figure out what’s wrong with this pulsar. In addition, monitoring will help to better understand the internal mechanisms of the appearance of supernovae and pulsars themselves,” added Frail.

  1. I’m not picking fault but are you sure about this? It seems somewhat forced and I’m concerned about you :

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast


  3. New to your blog Stumbled upon it browsing the web Keep up the great work I am hoping you update it regularly
