Binary System Failure
  • Description

    The red giant 2M05215658+4359220 is part of a binary star system in which its companion has collapsed into a black hole. When enough of its mass has been stripped, the red star will likely collapse, go nova and then condense into a neutron star.

    Not taking any tourists to this system.

    Going nova sounds awesome!

    Interesting system.

    The black hole itself is invisibly small, its position inferable from the disc of accreted plasma torn loose from its sister as it vanishes into the event horizon.
