Astronomers Predict Birth of a New Star

Astronomers Predict Birth of a New Star

The dark nebula Barnard 68

A computer simulation of the dark nebula Barnard 68 suggests the cloud will collapse into a brand new star relatively soon… at least on an astronomical time scale.

Astrophysicist João Alves, director of the Calar Alto Observatory in Spain, and his colleague Andreas Bürkert from  the University of Munich, believe the dark cloud Barnard 68 will inevitably collapse and give rise to the new star, according to an article published recently in the April 2009 issue of  The Astrophysical Journal.

Barnard 68 (B68) is a dark nebula about 400 light years away in the constellation of Ophiuchus. Such nebulae are interstellar clouds of dust and gas located within the Milky Way which block out the light of the stars and other objects behind them.
