SUPERSTAR




Until recently it was thought that existed a superior limit (150 times the mass of our sun), for massive stars. A myth that has just collapsed when being had discovered a star 265 times but massive that our sun, with 1 000 000 years of existence. The star –part of a massive cluster of stars of Tarantula Nebula, to 165,000 years-light of our Milky Way- was discovered by the European Space Observatory's it Telescopes, located in the desert of Atacama. It has been predicted that it superficial temperature surpasses the 40,000 grades Celsius, is 7 times but heat and several millions of times but brilliant that our sun.



SUPERESTRELLA.



Hasta hace poco se pensaba que existia un limite superior (150 veces la masa de nuestro sol), para estrellas masivas. Un mito que acaba de derrumbarse al haberse descubierto una estrella 265 veces mas masiva que nuestro sol, con 1 000 000 años de existencia. La estrella -parte de un grupo masivo de estrellas de la nebulosa Tarántula, a 165,000 años luz de la Via Láctea- fué descubierta por el European Space Observatory's Telescope, ubicado en el desierto de Atacama. Se ha predicho que su temperatura superficial sobrepasa los 40,000 grados Celsius, es 7 veces mas caliente y varios millones de veces mas brillante que nuestro sol.
