Foxnews occasionally does have something of use on their website outside of what I think is one of the better history news feeds i have found (here). An ANU fellow, Jorge Melendez has discovered what is thought to be a close comparable ‘twin’ to our own beloved giver of rising sea levels accross the galaxy, the Sun.
“The mid-sized star is one of many in the Draco (the dragon) constellation and may be a billion years older than the sun, which is middle-aged at 4.6 billion years.
Three other solar twins were previously proposed: 18 Scorpius, HD 98618 and HIP 100963.
The wayward star challenges the idea that our backyard star has a unique composition, as it has a similarly low quantity of the element lithium — a lightweight byproduct of the fusion reactions that power stars.”
Go you good thing.
