Those were the wishes for this year which is going towards its end….most have happened and some are still meant to happen, but I may say that the prospectives are good. Courage and self confidence shall never miss, but hope and willfulness above all. I wish you all the very best for the remaining of this amazing year and the next one(s). 

The tremendous kiss of two stars

The kiss of two stars

An incredible stellar system has been found where two stars are so close that their surfaces are overlapping. It is the hottest and most massive double star system ever seen, and provides a rare glimpse into what is believed to be a relatively brief cosmic event.

Both of the stars are nearly identical in size, with a combined mass 57 times greater than the Sun, meaning one is not sucking material from the other – rather, they are likely sharing 30% of their material. This has led to a “bridge” forming between their two connected surfaces.

I call it a star kiss, but this will be expensive for their life, which can be shortened due to the strong gravitational interaction and lead to a huge supernova explosion. The strongest kiss in the universe.
