Star was first seen in the year 2016
The largest solar explosion ever seen
Hundred times larger than the Sun in size
Severe solar storm is spreading everywhere
New Delhi: A giant star larger than sun exploded far away. We could not feel it,
but astronomers have seen it happening.
The name of this giant star was SN 2016 APS. It ended by exploding at a distance
of about 3.6 billion light years from Earth. It is evident that this explosion that
occurred at such a distance must have already happened, the glimpse of which has
now been captured in the earth’s instruments. Scientists also believe that if such
an explosion had happened close to the Earth, the entire Earth would have been
destroyed and other planetary systems around the Sun would have fallen into it.
Nevertheless, scientists believe that the effect of the energy generated by this
explosion will come, it remains to be seen. At present, after the explosion in this
area, solar particles are spreading everywhere. A situation like solar storm has
also occurred and the effect of this typhoon is seen spreading.
As its name suggests, this star was discovered in the year 2016. It was first seen
by an astronomy telescope on the Hawaiian Islands. For this, after getting the
information from the scientific team, NASA’s Hubble Telescope also started
monitoring it. The explosion was already being foreseen because the light there is
constantly increasing. This happens only when a star changes its structure and
leaves the energy contained inside it. All its parts are transformed into gas and
spread to all four chars in space. It is being monitored for two consecutive years.
Regarding the light emanating from there, scientists believe that this light is
created due to the collision of the star and the gas around it. After this explosion,
its light is spreading rapidly like a solar storm. Matt Nicholl, the scientist
associated with this entire research, says this is the biggest explosion ever.
According to him, it may have caused huge explosions in space, but this is the
biggest in terms of being captured in scientific instruments. Nicole is a professor
at the School of Physics at the University of Birmingham. He was associated with
this research from the very beginning. He said that generally this type of
explosion in space has less one percent radiation but this is the first time when
radiation is being considered five times more. It can also be estimated from how
huge this explosion is.
Astronomers have also told about this star that in size it is probably one hundred
times bigger than its sun. This is why so much energy is being released from its
burst. This explosion is mainly a chemical reaction of hydrogen. But due to the
explosion, other gases also spread far and wide in space due to the intense heat.
A dissertation about this explosion has been published on 13 April. In which
detailed information is given about the whole process and possibilities. The co-
author of this dissertation is Edo Berger. He is a professor in the Department of
Astronomy of Harvard University. NASA’s web room telescope is being used for
this. NASA’s James Webb Telescope is currently being added. Which is planned
to be sent to space soon. Currently most of NASA‘s space programs have been
discontinued due to corona infection. But now after the information about the
location and volume of this explosion is recorded, it is certain that after the James
Webb Telescope is installed in space, it will also get more information through it.
