The fluorine in your toothpaste was likely formed billions of years ago in now dead stars of the same type as our sun, astronomers said.
The NASA/ ESA Hubble Space Telescope has found signs of Earth-like planets in the atmospheres of a pair of burnt-out stars in a nearby star cluster.
Scientists have studied two dead stars, which they say are giving us a glimpse as to how our Solar System might look like a few billion years from now.
Scientists are investigating the feasibility of using X-rays from dead stars to allow spacecrafts to navigate autonomously in the outer Solar System and beyond.
These dense, burnt-out stars rotate rapidly, sweeping their emission across the cosmos at rates that are so stable they rival atomic clock performance.
In a new research, scientists have found that supernova, which are ‘cosmic candles’ used to fix the distance of objects in the universe, are caused by the merger of two small dead stars called white dwarfs.
