Astronomers accidentally spotted the exposed inner core of a “strange” star

The exposed core of a massive star has been spotted for the first time, a discovery described as purely “accidental” by the team that stumbled upon it.

Although the core stars where the vast majority of stellar energy is generated by the nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium, they are usually obscured by the bright outer material surrounding them. Stellar cores are exposed only in rare and extremely short-lived circumstances.
