Scientists track growth of "an embryo of a star"

In a paper published Thursday in Science, Carlos Carrasco-Gonzalez and his colleagues said they were able to compare images taken 18 years apart of a massive star called W75N(B)-VLA 2, which is about eight times more massive than the sun.

Using the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, a collection of 27 telescopes at an observatory in New Mexico, the researchers compared images from 2014 and 1996 of the protostar some 4,200 light years away from Earth and noticed visible milestones of its development.
