NASA’s Hubble captures image of dynamic star death

Science
Aug. 23 (UPI) -- NASA and the European Space Agency on Friday released an image of a dying star that the agencies said confounded astronomers when they first studied it. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image released this week was thought to be a picture of two separate objects, when in fact the objects are one star that has separated into two lobes.
