Doomed Star in Milky Way Threatens Rare Gamma-Ray Burst
11-19-18, The Milky Way is the galaxy [nb 1] that contains our Solar System. The center of it is 26,000 light years from Earth. University of Sydney astronomers, Professor Tuthill working with international colleagues, have found a star system like none seen before in our galaxy. They believe one of the stars—about 8000 light years from Earth—is the first known candidate in the Milky Way to produce a dangerous gamma-ray burst, among the most energetic events in the universe, when it explodes and dies.
The system, comprising a pair of scorchingly luminous stars, was nicknamed Apep the serpentine Egyptian god of chaos. One star is on the brink of a massive supernova explosion.
The findings, say Nature Astronomy, are controversial as no gamma-ray burst has ever been detected within our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Fortunately, Apep appears not to be aimed at Earth, because a strike by a gamma-ray burst from this proximity could strip ozone from the atmosphere, drastically increasing our exposure to UV light from the Sun.
Professor Tuthill said, "Ultimately, we can't be certain what the future has in store for Apep. The system might slow down enough so it explodes as a normal supernova rather than a gamma-ray burst. However, in the meantime, it is providing astronomers a ringside seat into beautiful and dangerous physics that we have not seen before in our galaxy." More here Live Science here
