Russian-German Space Telescope Finds Oldest Dwarf Planet in our Solar System

It was announced at the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences that the Russian-German Spectr-RG space telescope had found the remains of the oldest dwarf planet in our solar system, thermonuclear supernova that exploded 40,000 years ago.

Russian-German Space Telescope Finds Oldest Dwarf Planet in our Solar System

“The Russian astrophysicists, who discovered this object and named it G116.6-26.1 based on its coordinates in the sky, believe that this object is the remnant from an explosion of a dwarf planet in our solar system dated 40,000 years ago, and the main difference between it and hundreds of similar items, “the institute said in a statement. resides in the properties of the gas in which it circulates.

According to the site “RT” the researchers point out that the discovery of a thermonuclear supernova in our galaxy is very rare and that G116.6-26.1 is not at the level of the galaxy, but rather four thousand light years and ten thousand light years above it from the sun.
Scientists believe that a thermonuclear explosion of a white dwarf with a mass of 1.4 solar masses occurred about 40,000 years ago and, as a result of the explosion, its fragments were emitted at an incredible speed of about three thousand kilometers. per second.

The diameter of this object is about 600-700 light years and, due to thermonuclear supernova reactions, more than half of its mass is converted into iron.
