Astronomers claim to have found a ‘vampire’ star with the help of the Kepler Space Telescope. This star spreads through the universe in a mysterious way very fast. He says that it has been detected with the help of data collected from the Kepler Space Telescope. Principal researcher Ryan Ridden-Harper says that we found a Dwarf Nova during the study. It is a group of suddenly exploding stars, whose components also contain white dwarfs. It is such a star that our sun will also become like this after a gap of billions of years and its components will show brown dwarfs. Harper, who studied it as his PhD at The Australian National University said, “This rare event is caused by a huge explosion from Dwarf Nova. It can be just like the vampire star system.’ He further notes, ‘Data from Kepler show that during the 30-day period the Dwarf Nova becomes 1600 times brighter before rapidly dimming and gradually regaining to its normal radiance.’
This glow is due to the removal of the material around the dwarf, which surrounds the white dwarf in a disc. The temperature of this disc reaches 11,7000 °C, causing a huge explosion. This study has been done to detect rare occurrence of astronomical phenomena, which occur very rapidly. Such as the explosion of gamma rays by rapid disruption of supernova, collisions of neutron stars, or events that have never been seen before with the help of telescopes. This discovery has been made by Ryden Harper with the help of ANU case collaborators, the Space Telescope Science Institute and the University of Notre Dame in the US. He said, “The discovery of this Dwarf Nova was shocking because we were not searching for it.” But this gave us a new direction to understand the amazing figures and these vampire wires.’ He said that our next step would be to study the Kepler data closely and expand the data of the transiting exoplanet survey satellite.
Harper said, “A combined study of these data will help us understand the fastest explosion event in the universe.” It is also possible that we can detect even those rare phenomena which no telescope has yet been able to detect. ‘ Dr. Brad Tucker, who reviewed Harper’s study, says, “We have used it to see the explosion of stars, the hidden secrets of the black hole, and now more recently the vampire wires.”
