The Star Of Death Finally Discovered: Researchers Say That It Literally Causes A Planet’s Death By Eating Them, Is The Earth Close To It?
Astronomers and experts alike have recently made a conclusion about the disturbing secret of an unusual planetary system with a host star that is similar to Earth's sun. This study, as experts describe it, would somewhat provide with a concrete evidence that there is indeed interplanetary violence in the outer space and not just in movies. The study which was published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics suggests that the star's rare composition is in fact eating some its planets. Thus, astronomers are convinced that the real-life "Death Star" could potentially be used in studying how planetary systems evolve over time.
Death Star: How Far Is The Planet Earth From Being-Ingested?
In one of his statements reported by CBC News, study co-author Jacob Bean said that the good thing with their discovery is that it also shows that this doesn't mean that the sun will 'eat' the Earth any time soon. However, the study provides an indication that violent histories may be common for planetary systems, including our very own galaxy, he adds.
It was found that the first orbiting a star other than the sun known as exoplanets was actually discovered in 1995. Since then, astronomers have found more than two thousand exoplanets, but studying stars that are similar to our sun commonly referred to as solar twins and their connections to their planets is rare.
Furthermore, according to reports by Daily Mail, another co-author of the study, Megan Bedell, a UChicago doctoral student and the lead planet finder for the collaboration reveals that the team plans to study more stars like this to see whether this is a common outcome of the planet formation process. Moreover, experts have highly emphasized that although the discovery of the solar twin provides clues, researchers are careful to point out that conclusions can't be drawn from a single system.
Ultimately, scientists explain that stars with hot interiors, like the sun and this star, consume lithium over time. However, planets preserve lithium because their inner temperatures aren't as hot. Therefore, when a star engulfs a planet, the lithium from the planet stands out.

Netflix is Raising Prices, Here’s How it Now Compares to Other Streaming Services
Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
