## Thorne–Żytkow Object (TZO) – A star within a star

When we were kids, we had no clue how stars were born. There were many ideas, some of which now seem inane in retrospect, but the actual process was unknown. If you’re thinking that a star gobbling up another star doesn’t make sense, this article will make you change your mind. Let us just understand what happens in the life of a huge star (> 10 times solar mass). A giant star starts generating energy by fusing hydrogen atoms to form Helium. This, however, takes millions of years to happen. The Helium core formed, will then try to fuse Helium atoms to form Beryllium because of the high temperature of the core. The star becomes a red supergiant. In the subsequent millions of years, a series of nuclear reactions take place forming different cores which would lead to an iron … Continue reading

## The AuthaGraph – The Most accurate World Map

The name AuthaGraph is from authalic and graph which was invented by Japanese architect Hajime Narukawa in the year 1999. AuthaGraph is a rectangular world map made by an equal division of a spherical surface into 96 triangles, transferring it to a tetrahedron while maintaining the area proportions and unfolding it to be a rectangle. There was no perfect resolution in representing a spherical image on a rectangular piece of paper. In its long history, Mercator projection is one such previous art which fits in a rectangle and has been familiar for 440 years, since it has guided explorers to the new world. Thus existing maps contain distortion when transforming an entire sphere to a rectangle; they are unable to fit the outline in a rectangle without gaps, therefore, called mechanical vignetting. The proposed AuthaGraph map was developed by multi-layers of projections via a tetrahedron. By this method, it is able to transform an entire … Continue reading
