Findings in a recent study have proposed that our native Milky Way galaxy has far more number of massive stars than expected, above that most of them are a part of close stellar duos.
However, main issue raised includes that these stars have an unstable relationship with a ‘vampire star’, which either drains out gas from some other star or the two stars unite to form a single star.
It has been recovered that the findings have been gathered as a result of observations made by astronomers of massive O-type stars using European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile. These stars have been subjected to be very hot, which surface temperature equivalent to 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit (30,000 degrees Celsius) and emit bright light.
Other features of these stars include they are short lived, but with aggression. However, they have a major role to play in development of galaxies.
The researchers asserted that majority of the massive stars, about 70% of them were having linked to another close by star, thus making a binary system, in which both the stars were revolving around each other.
“While this percentage is far more than was previously expected, the astronomers were more surprised to find that majority of these stellar pairs have tumultuous relationships with one another”, said study co-author Selma de Mink.
