In this supercomputer simulation, the stars of Eta Carinae are shown as black dots. Lighter colors indicate greater densities in the stellar winds produced by each star. At closest approach, the fast wind of the smaller star carves a tunnel in the thicker wind of the larger star. Credits: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center/T. Madura

We don't have all the answers on why this star is so old. SDSS J102915+172927 composition

It doesn’t have a very catchy name, but star SDSS has a unique story rooted in its unexplained and somewhat mysterious origins.

Unusual Light Signal Hints at Distant Black Hole Merger

Scientists saw repeating pulses from a quasar — a bright galactic core powered by at least one huge black hole — and say the light is likely being generated during the latter stages of a monster black hole collision.

At the centre of a mysterious nebula, astronomers discover two stars locked in such a tight orbit that they will eventually merge and explode.

A new high-energy X-ray image from NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, has pinpointed the true monster of a galactic mashup. The image shows two colliding galaxies, collectively called Arp 299, located 134 million light-years away. Each of the galaxies has a supermassive black hole at its heart.  NuSTAR has revealed that the black hole located at the right of the pair is actively gorging on gas, while its partner is either dormant or hidden under gas and dust.

Living on the Edge: Stars Found Far from Galaxy Center

NASA's NuSTAR X-ray space telescope has identified a monster black hole feeding on gas from a galaxy collision 130 light-years from Earth.

A theoretical model of a galaxy like the Milky Way, showing trails of stars torn from disrupted satellite galaxies that have merged with the central galaxy. The structures seen in the SDSS-II star maps support this prediction of a complicated outer Milky

The Marvels Of Space - The moon's shadow...  Now, lest someone get their panties in a bunch about the top image not looking right, remember that the sun's light on the backside of the moon at a low angle, creates a fan-shaped shadow, the edge of which is grazing the clouds.  Our point of view is greatly foreshortened.

Tipped toward Earth and illuminated by the star, these rings look like ellipses in images taken with NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The massive star at the center, which lies within the constellation Sagittarius, is about 7,200 light-years from Earth.
