Space: a fly quark star (alien star) may have been observed for the first time

Space: a fly quark star (alien star) may have been observed for the first time
These unusual celestial bodies are formed when a gravitational field causes the collapse of a massive star of such density that it breaks up neutrons into elementary particles.

Astrophysicists from the University of São Paulo and the Federal University of ABC (Brazil) have discovered remnants of Supernova What could be a “weird” star, or subatomic particlesa hypothetical celestial body formed after the gravitational collapse of a A massive star. As detailed in their paper, which has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Astronomy & Astrophysics, a compact object in the supernova remnant HESS J1731-347 was thought to be a young neutron star. However, new measurements of its mass, volume, and surface temperature suggest that it might be Another type of orb. After comparing the measurement results of the compact object XMMU J173203.3-344518 with the hypothesized gravitational theory models and with different cooling scenarios, the researchers found that its properties are more in line with those of the gravitational theory. quark star

Space: first observed flying quark star (strange star)

Quark stars are, in theory, hypothetical celestial bodies that form when their gravitational field collapses. A massive star With such an intensity that neutrons decay into elementary particles. According to the academics, the mass of the celestial body, which is equal to 0.77% of the mass of the Sun, is much less than the mass of neutron stars with iron cores, whose mass is usually 1.1 times greater than the mass of the Sun. So far, these results match the observations made by researchers at University of Tübingen (Germany) and transcend Initial consistency checkswhich “They open a window to theoretical and observational work to study in depth the formation of nature and historyand confirm its source. If it is proven to be a quark star, the theory proposing its existence will also be confirmed.
