The cosmos has various elements. Space is filled with stars, planets, and things. The origins of the cosmos and life on Earth are always intriguing. Scientists are studying a large “celestial monster star” cluster.
The James Webb Space Telescope found the first evidence that millions of enormous stars may have formed our cosmos. Monster stars? Find out. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope Discovers Water Vapour on Remote Planet.
According to Live Science, these huge stars are the biggest ever observed. They weigh 5,000–10,000 times the sun. Researchers found these enormous stars 440 million years after the Big Bang. European researchers published in Astronomy and Astrophysics on May 5.
“The stars could illuminate how our universe was first seeded with heavy elements,” the report says. NASA James Webb Space Telescope Discovers Water Around Comet in Main Asteroid Belt.
Monster stars ‘the size of 10,000 suns’
Space telescope James Webb finds evidence of the universe’s origin. It found supermassive stars. These stars were in odd clusters, resembling densely packed stars.
They burnt out early in the universe. “Superstars live two million years, while globular clusters are 10–13 billion years old. Thus, they faded early from visible clusters. Mark Gieles, co-author and University of Barcelona ICREA professor, says only indirect evidence remain.
Finding these stars is tricky. These stars burnt at 75 million degrees. Bigger, brighter, and hotter stars die first, therefore these enormous stars may have exploded violently. Despite emerging 13.4 billion years ago from the same gas and dust clouds, various stars in these clusters had very different concentrations of oxygen, nitrogen, sodium, and aluminum.
