Milky Way: ‘burden of population’ even on the Milky Way! More stars are being born than expected, know the whole matter

Categories : Science & Tech

Every year stars are formed in our galaxy i.e. Milky-Way. But a new study has surprised the scientific community. A study led by scientists from the University of Würzburg in Germany says that the rate of star formation in the Milky Way is higher than previously estimated. That is, more stars are being born every year than scientists have been thinking. This study has also rejected the thinking in which it is believed that the formation of stars is a stable process.

This study, published in Astronomy and Astrophysics, is available on the preprint server arXiv. Quoting the American space agency NASA, our associate website has written that the birth of stars is due to the mixing of gases inside the clouds of dust. These clouds are scattered in most of the galaxies. The best known example of these is the Orion Nebula. According to NASA, due to turbulence inside the clouds, knots are formed and gas and dust together start forming stars.

According to information, it begins with a protostar. It is the hot core of a collapsing cloud, which one day becomes a star. According to Science Alert, so far it is believed that the Milky Way ie our galaxy produces stars every year with the material equal to two Suns. Because these stars are so small compared to the Sun, it is expected that about 6 or 7 stars are born in our galaxy every year.

But recent studies say that stars with the mass of the Sun are evolving 4 to 8 times every year. Because their size is small, according to that our galaxy should produce 10 to 20 stars every year. Although this is also a guess, it has rejected the previous theory.
