Giant bubble in space baffles astronomers

Of 24: Astronomers recently spotted a giant empty “bubble” in space, during a study they were conducting on how stars are formed.

In their research, whose results were published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, the scientists indicated that the bubble extends for about three thousand trillion miles, and is devoid of stars.

To explain the emergence of such a giant bubble, astrophysics researcher Shmuel Bialy said: “The bubble may have formed after a supernova exploded in its core, pushing gas outward, forming this void.”

“When a star dies, its supernova generates a chain of events that may eventually lead to the birth of new stars,” he added.

He continued, “Astronomers have tested these theoretical ideas using simulations in the past, but this is the first time that we can use real 3D renderings to evaluate theories, up to the end result,” according to the British newspaper, “Daily Star”.

The giant bubble was spotted in space while researchers analyzed 3D maps of molecular clouds created using data from the European Space Agency’s Gaia space probe.
