In the insides of the star Antares lies a powerful and hitherto unknown force that astronomers have not seen until now."

    The behavior of the spectrum of CO emissions allowed astronomers to estimate the density and velocity of Antares plasma flows. And it is at that point that they were caught off guard noticing something totally weird: the density is significantly higher than expected.

    This means that the substance expelled from the depths of the star to its surface is quantitatively far superior to what was thought possible according to previous concepts.

    At the moment, this can only be interpreted like this: in the insides of the star Antares lies a powerful and hitherto unknown force that astronomers have not seen until now.

    This study was presented in the Journal Nature and can be............"
