"Sometimes I have meditative moments at work and am amazed at the things we explore and find because they are so big and weird," says Astrophysicist Denny N Dobrotka.
The scientist deals with an acre study that explores binary stars, black holes and super-black black holes.
He is an expert at the Institute for Advanced Technology Research at the Faculty of Material Science and Technology, STU in Bratislava, based in Trnava.
The Slovak scientist has discovered that black holes prevent new stars from forming in galaxies called red boxes
Check the light curve
In the case of interacting double stars, one star (white dwarf) is gravitationally dominant and "eats" the second star, which drops to its table.
Such a process of flooding of matter from the environment is professionally called accretion.
Since the material of a burnt star does not fall directly into the more aggressive, the so-called acrylic disc is made of it.
"The whole flow of matter is very stormy, causing the death of the disk continuously but blinks (from English. flickering)– says Astrophysicist of Dobrotka.
Such shimmering or changes in the purity of an acrylic disk are not accidental and scientists are looking for some time patterns. "When we find them, we can relate them to certain physical phenomena, because all physical processes have characteristic time scales," says the Slovak astrophysicist.
The light curve that catches the acrylic disc in the blink of an eye is the key to a physically better understanding of binary stars and acres.
Beginning of Career Observation
In the past, goodwill was primarily concerned with computer simulations.
