10 Most Incredible Stars In The Universe
Today you’re going to read about some of the most Incredible stars in existence. The universe is estimated to have about 100 billion galaxies and roughly 100 billion stars are in each galaxy. With so many stars there are bound to be a few oddballs. Many of the brilliant burning balls of gas are fairly similar to each other but some stand apart as bizarre for their size, weight, and behavior. Using advanced telescopes, scientists continue to study these stars to better understand them and the universe, but mysteries still remain. Curious to hear about the strangest stars out there? These are 10 most Incredible stars in the universe.
10 PSR J1719-1438b
Technically, PSR J1719-1438b isn’t a star, but it was once. When it was a star, its outer layers were sucked away by another star, transforming it into a small planet. What’s even more crazy about this former star is it’s now basically a giant diamond planet five times larger than the Earth.
9 OGLE TR-122b
Usually, the average size of a star makes most planets look like pebbles but in OGLE TR-122b’s case, it’s about the same size as Jupiter. That’s right, its the smallest star in the universe. Scientists believe it began as a stellar runt a few billion years ago; it’s the first time they found a star in size comparable to a planet.
8 L1448 IRS3B
Astronomers discovered L1448 IRS3B, a triple star system, right when it started to form. Using the ALMA telescope in Chile, they watched as two young stars revolved around a much older star. They believe these two young stars were created from a nuclear reaction from the rotating gas around a star.
Mira, also known as Omicron Ceti, is 420 light years away and is rather bizarre for its constantly fluctuating brightness. Scientists believe its a dying star at the end of its life. Even more amazing is the fact it’s traveling through space at 80 miles per second and has a tail a few light years long.
If you thought a double star system was cool, then you might want to sit down for Fomalhaut-C. It’s a triple star system only 25 light years from Earth. While triple star systems aren’t exactly unique, this one is because the stars are far apart rather than close together, an abnormality. Fomalhaut-C is particularly far away from A and B.
5 Swift J1644 57
Black hole appetites do not discriminate. In the case of Swift J1644 57, a dormant black hole awoke and devoured a star. Scientists made the discovery in 2011 using x-ray and radio wavelengths. It took the light of the event 3.9 billion light years to reach Earth.
4 PSR J1841-0500
Known for their regular and continuous pulsing beams of light, pulsars are fast-spinning stars which rarely “turn off.” But PSR J1841-0500 surprised scientists when it did just that for 580 days. Scientists believe studying it will help them understand how pulsars work.
3 PSR J1748-2446
The weirdest thing about PSR J1748-2446 is that its the universe’s fastest spinning object. It has a density 50 trillion times greater than lead. To top it off, its magnetic field is a trillion times more intense than our Sun. In short, it’s one insanely overactive star.
2 SDSS J090745.0 024507
SDSS J090745.0 024507 is a ridiculously long name for a star that got away. With the help of a supermassive black hole, the star flung out of its orbit and is moving fast enough to escape the Milky Way. Let’s just hope one of these getaway stars doesn’t come barreling toward us.
1 Magnetar SGR 1806-20
Magnetar SGR 1806-20 is a terrifying force existing in our universe. Located 50,000 light years away, astronomers detected a bright flash so powerful it bounced off the moon and lit up the Earth’s atmosphere for ten seconds. The solar flare raised questions among scientists if another one like it led to an extinction event on Earth.
