In Science and Space: The Hubble Space Telescope continues to amaze us. Mysterious images captured by the telescope again piqued my interest. It turned out to be a bright newborn star, enveloped in a dense veil of gas and dust.
A twin outflow of gas and dust from a young star emerges from the rotating disk of matter that surrounds it. But for IRAS 05506+2414, a fan-shaped nebula of matter is spreading outward from the center of the image at a velocity of 350 kilometers per second (780,000 miles per hour), said the report.
The young star IRAS 05506+2414 captured by the Hubble Telescope is located about 9,000 light-years away in the constellation Taurus. This image was taken with the telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). This young object is thought to be an example of a violent explosion caused by a massive young star system perturbation.
Astronomers can measure the speed of matter moving outward from a star, but it is difficult for him to measure how far the star really is from Earth in a single observation. Aside from that nascent star, the Hubble Telescope captured the bright red supergiant Betelgeuse last month. Betelgeuse is slowly recovering after physically blowing up its tip in 2019. The star has lost a significant portion of its visible surface, and massive surface masses are causing ejecta (SMEs): this has never happened before, says Andrea of the Harvard and Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Dupree said.
