Video: scientists show how stars are born

UNITED STATES.- To the amazement of the lovers of the astronomy, a scientific team from Northwestern University ??, Illinois, United States, has created a 3D simulator. This provides the opportunity to see how the stars with astonishing resolution. In this way, the images exposed in a video they are the most realistic yet.

In this sense, the audiovisual is a true cosmic journey through a gas cloud with many colors in a three-dimensional space. So you can see how the stars thanks to the Star Formation in a Gaseous Environment (STARFORGE) computer system modeling this simulation that reproduces their formation, evolution and dynamism.

“How stars are formed is a fundamental question in astrophysics”, revealed the astrophysicist of the Northwestern University, Claude-André Faucher-Giguère. In addition, he added that: “It has been a very challenging matter to explore, due to the variety of physical processes involved. This new simulation will help us to directly address fundamental questions that before we could not definitively answer ”.

During this work, a large number of physical phenomena of stars were taken into account, as well as stellar feedback, radiation, wind and supernova activity. STARFORGE gives an account of the way in which the various processes that influence their formation interact. In addition, it was specified that the simulations were made on the Frontera supercomputer of the University of Texas, which is one of the most imposing in the whole world.

On the other hand, it is worth remembering that STARFORGE has previously revealed the protostellar jets and gas streams that initiate star formation. Thus, by calculating its exact mass, the team of scientists will be able to know about the brightness and the way in which they operate inwards and, with it, be able to predict an astonishing astronomical phenomenon: its death.
