SOME SPACE MAGIC

Even stars aren’t immune to spotty conditions, new research suggests.

Scientists were studying a class of fairly small, unusually hot stars that have very little hydrogen.

Astronomers are interested in studying these objects because when these stars run out of fuel, something strange happens.

Instead of turning into red giants as most smaller stars do, they become white dwarfs, a type of stellar remnant.
