The Very Curious Creation of an Ageing Star The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has made a rare celestial catch. Close to a bright, nearby star in this image, the bizarre, whorl-shaped object known as IRAS 22036+5306 has been captured during a brief tumultuous period late in a star's life.

Hidden under this veil, the dense, still-burning, exposed core of the star grows hotter.

How red giants lose weight An artist's impression of a star and dust shell. Image: Anna Mayall Putting all dieters to shame, the red giant stars of our galaxy lose many times the entire mass of the Earth, every year. Unlike Hollywood starlets, they have not previously revealed their weight-loss secrets, posing an enigma for scientists, until this breakthrough study by the University of Sydney, published in Nature on 12 April.
