Astronauts have renamed the star NaSt1 with an alias ‘Nasty 1.’ Astronauts acknowledge that the star is losing hydrogen layers rapidly, resulting the exposure of extremely dazzling and blinding amazing helium-based surface. On the other hand, after 10 years, the Nasty 1 does not follow in the footsteps of the Wolf-Rayet star. Lead researcher from the University of California, Berkerley John Mauerhan communicated that they were excited to see the disc-like structure because it might be the verification for a Wolf-Rayet star forming a binary interaction.
“There are very few examples in the galaxy of this process in action because this phase is short-lived,” said Mauerhan.
The team created a couple of scenarios for the age and advancement of the star. On the other hand, the best speculation exhibits that the star is growing rapidly in light of the loss of hydrogen layers, making it expand. The observation is found in others stars, yet it’s a remarkable occasion in usual ones. Researchers acknowledge that there may be only a few stars like Nasty 1, and is believed to be two or three thousand years old, approximately 3,000 light years away.
The long term study included extensive research as the star is shrouded in gas and dust on account of its changing state. The star moreover had a restricted view through the Hubble telescope. Mauerhan said that the star is set to go to through a certain transformation and anyway it won’t be the research team that will handle the tedious study. What’s to come is subject to many possibilities
