Smallest Massive White Dwarf Dead Star: Have you ever heard of a star that is being said to be both the biggest and the smallest at the same time? But such a star has really been found. Scientists have discovered a dead star, which is equal in size to the Moon but has a mass greater than that of the Sun. The name of this dead star (White Dwarf) is ZTF J1901+1458. It is located at a distance of just 4,280 kilometers (2,660 mi), but has 1.35 times the mass of the Sun.
It is a white colored dead star, which means that its existence has now ended. According to a report by Vion, the star is located at a distance of 130 light years from us. The star is more dense, which is very close to the Chandrasekhar Limit. The Chandrasekhar limit refers to the maximum mass that a white dwarf star can have before it becomes unstable.
100 million years old star
The explosion that occurs after this causes the death of the star. This white star is 100 million years old. According to the study done by the scientists, there is a strong magnetic effect on this white star. Its magnetic field is also several billion times stronger than that of the Sun (Small Massive Dead Star). All the discoveries made by the team of researchers during the study have been published in Science General Nature. Even before this, scientists have made many discoveries about dead stars.
Star can destroy planets too
On the other hand, if we talk about a dead star, then after the completion of its age, a star also destroys the other remaining planets of the solar system. This concept has been established for many years. Scientists associated with the US space agency NASA have also found many important evidences supporting this. During their K2 mission, scientists had also seen a small body break up near a white dwarf star (Extreme Greater Mass White Dwarf). Scientists have long believed that white dwarf stars have the potential to destroy the rest of the planets in their solar system.
