While 2020 left a lot to be desired for many of us, it wasn’t such a bad year in science. Last year, scientists found ludicrously fast stars, ancient galaxy clusters and developed a camera that could change how we study the night sky.
The fast star–S4714– was perhaps the most intriguing discovery. It was spotted at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy traveling ludicrously fast, like 85 millions kilometers per hour, or 8 percent the speed of light. A star that fast could leave Earth on a Monday and arrive at Pluto on a Wednesday night. Tune in to more discoveries in this episode of SciShow.ARVE Error: need id and provider
