Scientists using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope found a”vampire”star”to draw”life in another star.
Experts found a surprising”Super-projection”from a dwarf Nova, a”cataclysmic variable stars”. According to NASA, the star system, which includes a white dwarf and smaller brown dwarf companions see the light a factor of 1 600 in less than a day. It then slowly disappeared.
“Brown dwarf circles a white dwarf every 83 minutes a distance of only 250,000 miles(400 000 km)–about the distance from the earth to the Moon,”said NASA in a statement. “They are so close to the white dwarf’s strong gravity strips material from the brown dwarf to draw its essence like a vampire.”

The space Agency explained that the deprivation of the material to form a disc, because it”spiral”toward the white dwarf, which is known as a area plate.
A team led by Ryan rider-the Harper Space Telescope Science Institute(STScI), Baltimore, Maryland, Australian National University,Canberra, Australia made this discovery through search Cape archives data.
Only about 100 of this type of dwarf Nova systems are known, NASA said, it may take years or even decades of a burst of life.

“In a sense, we discovered this system by accident. We are not specifically looking for a super-eruption. We are looking for any kind of instantaneous,”said ride Harper’s statement.
The study was published in the monthly notice of the Royal Astronomical Society.
This discovery is just the latest discoveries using data from the Kepler Space Telescope. In 2015, for example, the Kepler mission discovery of Pul-452b, the first Near-Earth asteroid in the”habitable zone”around a sun-like Star.
The scientists of the GOOGLE search’data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope found a new planet
In 2016, experts from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the University of San Diego using the Kepler Space Telescope point Kepler-1647b,a planet with two suns in the constellation Cygnus constellation.
Under one year of Kepler data is crunched using artificial intelligence to help scientists discover a new planet outside our solar system.
