Astronomers spot closest, most massive double star i

Cllosest, most massive double starAstronomers have spotted an extreme binary star system. It's closer, hotter and more massive than any double star ever observed.

The research team spotted the binary system, called VFTS 352, while scanning the Tarantula Nebula using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope. The double star is 160,000 light-years away.

The centers of the two stars are separated by roughly one million miles, completing their orbit around each other in less than a day. Together their mass is equal to 57 suns. Each star burns at a temperature of 40,000 degrees Celsius.
