Most Luminous Superstar Eta Carinae Reaches Earth as Cosmic Rays

A new study has found out that the Superstar Eta Carinae, most luminous and massive stellar system, may reach Earth as cosmic rays. To discover it, astronomers used the data from NASA’s NuSTAR space telescope. “We know the blast waves of exploded stars can accelerate cosmic ray particles to speeds comparable to that of light, an incredible energy boost,” said Kenji Hamaguchi, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the lead author of the study.
