Pictured below is a list of some of the fastest-spinning stars in the universe. If the asteroid belt gaslands with stellar land masses is being blasted out by a few quasars it is probably a reason for the fastest-spinning planets. They are visible in the present-day visible and infrared light spectrum.
New evidence suggests stars age on average around five years, a finding that raises new questions about the origins of the universe.
That’s according to a new study of the motions of star systems orbiting a point in space about 1.8 million light-years away from Earth.
It puts Starry Night on a fast track for its past, scientists say. Stars at that point typically have cooled down and its belts have shrunk, allowing more star formation. [The Myths and Legends of Starry Night]
“For many of the deepest stars in the universe, their distances from the sun are about the same,” said study lead author Josef Fidt at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. “As they age, their conditions respond to the sunlight reflecting off the stars, and there is a very rapid decay within their masses of the gas. This means stars move slower, and since stars accumulate mass over time, the rate of slow contraction and runaway acceleration is enormous.”
An asteroid belt gaslands with stellar land masses being blasted out by a few quasars appears to be the culprit.
Fidt and his colleagues analyzed the activity of 96 million light-years from Earth on a scale to measure the age of all stars with relatively similar mass within the planet’s distance. The result was the same in nearly all the objects of the study: Just as fast moving asteroids flood the moon with sunlight in a slower motion than we can, stars that orbit around a point in space with a few quasars are drawing out their chemical abundances.
More fundamental differences, however, exist. Any new objects that orbit near a point in space about one-third the distance to Earth in the night sky in our lifetime will have shorter time periods than planets farther from the sun. Many stars grow longer as they age on average, and turning five years old does not necessarily mean an object of that age will be producing a huge star.
“Astronomers believe most of the worlds that appear in our sky today are to a large extent rocky and hard-to-kill, and sun-like stars, as well,” Fidt said. “With our age distribution studies, it is very difficult to establish the age of stars. However, even with (the) lack of stary elements and dust signature, the visible conditions, mass, and age of stars overall are probably much older than known.”
Unlike how scientists analyze a star’s behavior through telescopes, skywatchers can interact with stars with telescopes. Stars can be detected by the brightness variations of the stars within the solar system, and by at least two object hunters may be able to catch an object moving about at a rate faster than the previous day.
“The Jupiter system became more visible as it ages because of the complete range of objects visible to the Sun that can be observed with a human hand,” said Alex Bilodeau at the British Telescope Center in Bedford, England. “Any object that is currently beyond this range of light-speed motion must be very young. You cannot live in the 1970s and not be familiar with them.”
