In a research paper published by The Astrophysical Journal Letters, an international team of astrophysicists, including scientists from the University of Surrey, detail how they discovered a group of stars with different characteristics than their neighbors found in the Milky Way’s Nuclear Star Cluster (NSC).
The team used state-of-the-art high-resolution computer simulations to explain how this group of metal-poor and fast-rotating stars came to be located at the center of our galaxy.
Their c…
