NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope discovers White Dwarf sucking off material from orbiting Brown Dwarf

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope was designed to find exoplanets by looking for stars that dim as a planet crosses the star’s face. Fortuitously, the same design makes it ideal for spotting other astronomical transients – objects that brighten or dim over time.

A new search of Kepler archival data has uncovered an unusual super-outburst from a previously unknown dwarf nova. The system brightened by a factor of 1,600 over less than a day before slowly fading away.

This illustration shows a newly discovered dwarf nova system, in which a white dwarf star is pulling material off a brown dwarf companion. The material collects into an accretion disk until reaching a tipping point, causing it to suddenly increase in brightness. (NASA and L. Hustak (STScI))

President Donald Trump, 3 years of fighting for Americans

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Americans are sick of the Swamp. The numbers prove it. By a stunning 40-percent margin, independents say impeachment is “more important to politicians than it is to me.” A nearly identical number say that it’s “more important to the media than it is to me.”

It’s simple: Americans want results, not more partisan theater. The 2016 election should have been a wakeup call to career politicians and the Beltway establishment. Instead, they ignored the memo. They’d rather undo an election than fix their behavior.
