The United States – the dust of the explosion of dying stars flooding the space and the heavenly whirlpools have contributed to Earth. Human beings are not strangers Spatial phenomena And are in contact with these millenium particles, which are the raw material for glass production.
An international team of scientists said: "Every time we look out the window, walk on the sidewalk or step on the sandy beach, we interact with the substance that came from the explosion of stars burned millions of years ago."
Vacuum space contains material called silica, which accounts for about 60% of the earth's crust, whose shape, quartz, is an important component of sand.
The researchers found silica in the remains of two supernovas, located billions of light-years from Earth through the Spitzer Space Telescope. NASA, According to a full study published in the monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
Supernovas are produced when certain types of dying stars explode, and in these "celestial vortices" the atoms merge to form many common elements, such as sulfur and calcium, the medium explains.
Hailey Gomez, An expert in the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University Cardiff He said: "We showed for the first time that the silica produced by Supernova It was significant enough to contribute to the dust throughout the universe, including dust in the end to create our planet. "
