Astronomers note that stars like WR 124 also serve as an analogy to help understand an important period in the early history of the universe.

The James Webb Space Telescope captured this image of the rare Wolf-Rayet star WR 124, located 15,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius. This was reported by NASA.

“Massive stars go through their life cycles, and only a few of them go through a short Wolf-Rayet phase before going supernova, making Webb’s detailed observations of this rare phase important to astronomers, ” said the report.

The star was found to be about 30 times the mass of the Sun, and so far its loss of matter is ten times the mass of the Sun. Over time, the released gas cools and forms cosmic dust.

Cosmic dust, successfully observed in the infrared, is interesting to astronomers for many reasons, and primarily because it is an important part of the functioning of the universe. It can harbor forming stars and form planets.


Earlier it was reported that NASA decided to develop a spacecraft capable of directing the ISS to a controlled destruction in the Earth’s atmosphere.
