Diamond dust shimmering around distant stars

Some of the tiniest diamonds in the universe — bits of crystalline carbon hundreds of thousands of times smaller than a grain of sand — have been detected swirling around three infant star systems in the Milky Way. These microscopic gemstones are neither rare nor precious; they are, however, exciting for astronomers who identified them as the source of a mysterious cosmic microwave ‘glow’ emanating from several protoplanetary disks in our galaxy.

Most distant star ever detected sits halfway across the universe

Most distant star ever detected sits halfway across the universeBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Scientists have detected the most distant star ever viewed, a blue behemoth located more than halfway across the universe and named after the ancient Greek mythological figure Icarus. Researchers said on Monday they used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to spot the star, which is up to a million times more luminous and about twice as hot as our sun, residing 9.3 billion lights years away from Earth. It is a type of star called a blue supergiant.

Cosmic lens helps Hubble capture image of most distant star ever seen

Peering through the gravitational lens of a massive galaxy cluster 5 billion light years from Earth, astronomers have discovered a single, blue supergiant star 9 billion light years away, farther than any other normal star seen before. The star, dubbed Icarus, was magnified more than 2,000 times when it passed directly behind a sun-like star in the lensing cluster. This demonstrates a new way of studying stars in the earliest years of the universe.
