Betelgeuse is the night-brightest star in the night sky and the second biggest in the constellation of Orion. Some scientists believe that this star may become the brightest object in the near future. In the night sky, Betelgeuse is easy to spot with the naked eye (13% of its light visible to the human eye) owing to its distinctive orange-red colour.
End Of The Star’s Life
According to the Disclose.Tv, The end of the star’s life will come when the innermost core begins to fuse silicon and sulphur into iron, cobalt, and nickel. At this point, the star will reach supernova state and burn with intense brightness.
Despite its mammoth size, the red supergiant, Betelgeuse is spinning at 54,000 km/h (33,500 mph), around 150 times faster than it should be as reported by Mail Online. University of Texas astronomer Dr Craig Wheeler, lead author on the new study said: “We cannot account for the rotation of Betelgeuse. It’s spinning 150 times faster than any plausible single star just rotating and doing its thing.”
But as per the Disclose Tv, Despite the fact that Betelgeuse is around 600 light years away, its supernova state will not pose any danger to this solar system. However, it will significantly alter the landscape of the night’s sky for a brief period.
