For a white dwarf was first recorded quick gas emissions

Incredibly quick gas emissions of double stars involving a white dwarf, was first discovered by scientists from Oxford University, UK, led by Dr. Kanalom muli (Kunal Mooley). These first observations of such phenomena suggests that our understanding of the behavior of stars and possibilities of occurrence in their systems or those of other processes is incomplete.

New dwarf (objects of type SS Swan, including a sunlike star orbiting a white dwarf) is well known for its recurring, weak outbursts (called eruptions) associated with the gas flow from the companion star to the white dwarf, but never before for them was not observed so rapid series of flashes.

Initially, the monitoring activity of the dwarf new, held in February 2016, were considered as atypical eruption, but subsequent telescopic observations have revealed an intriguing picture of the rapid flashes. The most unusual and mysterious behavior of this system was observed in the radio band, where by the end of the eruption, scientists have observed a giant outburst. Lasted for less than 15 minutes, she had the energy equivalent to an energy of about one million of the most powerful solar flares. The power level of radio emission coming from this outbreak is unprecedented for a new dwarf and comparable to the power level of radiation of jets of black holes.

“Now we have to work with theorists to find the answer to the question, where did the dwarf in the system is a new of these quick flashes. To better understand the processes of accretion and ejection of gas for such systems, should conduct similar studies for other astrophysical systems,” said Dr muli.
