Top 10 stars facts Selected as the most interesting among stars related questions in Stars quiz This unique line of about 20 stars is known as ...Kemble's cascade. It was named by in honour of Father Lucian Kemble (1922–1999), a Franciscan friar and amateur astronomer who wrote a letter to Houston about the asterism, describing it as "a beautiful cascade of faint stars tumbling from the northwest down to the open cluster NGC 1502" that he had discovered while sweeping the sky with a pair of 7×35 binocularsCreated by: Tschukaastronomy facts » Which direction was the camera pointing at while taking this picture?North. The entire celestial sphere seems to rotate slowly around the North-South axis of Earth's rotation. So the camera must have been pointed North or South, depending on the hemisphere the photo was taken at. But the bright star in the center must be Polaris, as the south celestial pole currently lacks a bright star to mark its position. Created by: globalquiz.orgsky facts » What is the densest substance in the universe?Neutron star. A neutron star is a stellar remnant of a supernova. Neutron stars are very small, but extremely dense - with a radius of only about 12–13 km (7 mi), they can have a mass of about two Suns.Created by: globalquiz.orgphysics facts » What is the source of the most powerful release of energy in the universe, second in scale only to the Big Bang?Gamma-ray bursts are the brightest in the universe, even brighter than the glare of quasars, second only to the brightness and power of the Big Bang. It is believed that arise during disruption of stars by black holes.Created by: Krzysztof Moskaluniverse facts » What astronomical object emerges sometimes from supernova instead of a black hole?Magnetar. A magnetar is a type of neutron star with an extremely powerful magnetic field. The magnetic field decay powers the emission of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, particularly X-rays and gamma rays. As of March 2016, only 23 magnetars are known, with six more candidates awaiting confirmation.Created by: bordello się tu zrobiłłospace facts » What is the name of the hypothetical last stage of the evolution of Sun-sized stars?Black dwarf. A black dwarf is a theoretical stellar remnant, specifically a white dwarf that has cooled sufficiently that it no longer emits significant heat or lightCreated by: Tschukaastronomy facts » The brightest star in the constellation of twins is:Pollux.

A typical neutron star has a mass between about 1 and 2 solar masses, with a corresponding radius of just about 12 km. Some of them (pulsars), rotate as quickly as once per 33-millisecond, so their radius must be very small not to break the light speed limit at the surface level.Created by: Hà Linh Chitechnology facts » How many typical stars can supernova be luminous as?One hundred billion stars. Supernovae are extremely luminous and often briefly outshine an entire galaxy. No supernova has been observed in the Milky Way since 1604, but they are often observed in distant galaxies.Created by: globalquiz.orglight facts » Which star is called the "Dog Star"?Sirius (also known as dog-days, the Dog Star, and α CM) is the brightest and one of the closest stars of the night sky, located in the constellation Canis Major (Latin for "Great Dog").Created by: Krzysztof Moskaldogs facts » Play stars quiz and see all the questions.
