The celebrity star Beatles, is smaller and closer than we thought

If you are experiencing a peculiar sensation of breathing down someone’s throat, it may be a battle. The infamous star – an exciting subject It will-or-not-discuss that supernova Earlier this year – we suspect it may be too close to Earth.

Areca red is a super supergiant and is a monster compared to the size of our sun. A study published this week in the Astrophysical Journal has introduced some new calculations of star mass and distance, and gives us an estimate of when supernovae are likely to occur.

Speculation surrounding the Beatlesjus explosion kicked into 2019 high gear as the star went through a strangely obscure and bright episode starting in late 2019. Scientists believe that One of these events happened due to a cloud of dust. “We think another small event could be caused by a starbeat,” lead author Meredith Joyce said in a statement from the Australian National University (ANU) on Friday.

The science team used modeling to sort out what was happening with the heartbeat, describing it as “pressure waves – essentially sound waves” by Tokyo University co-author Shing-chi Lung. This activity helps researchers find out where the star is in its life cycle.

Compared to our solar system, scientists have estimated this as the size of BattleJues, but a new study corrects that estimate.


The upset is that the Beatles are not at risk of going supernova anytime soon. It could easily take 100,000 years before it reaches that stage. This is Consistent with what other scientists have suggested.

Study also shakes our knowledge of star size. “The actual body size of the betalus has been a bit of a mystery – previous studies suggest it may be higher than the orbit of Jupiter. Our results say that the betalus extends only up to two-thirds of its radius, 750 times its radius. The Sun,” said Concoli in Budapest. Said Laslow Molnar, co-author of the Observatory.

Better dialing the size of the battalions, the team was able to calculate its distance from Earth more accurately, placing it about 530 light-years away, or 25% closer than previously known. It is still sufficient that the future eruption of the Beatles would not damage the Earth.

“It’s still a really big deal when the supernova shuts down. And this is our closest candidate. We rarely get a chance to study what happens to this before the stars explode,” Joyce said.
