A new star – level 1

04-02-2022 15:00

Scientists find a new star. They first see it in 2018. The star shows light or not every 18 minutes. Now scientists know why. It is a neutron star. A neutron star is very small and heavy. Energy comes out from it regularly.

This star is different from other neutron stars. Scientists have never found a star like it before. They only think that maybe they can find it. They think that this type of star is not visible. Fortunately, the new star is very bright. A student finds it.

This is the only star of this type. Scientists hope that we can see other similar stars.

Difficult words: energy (heat, light, or movement), regularly (when something repeats at the same time every day, hour, month and so on), visible (something that people can see).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
