Astronomers from the University of Cambridge have discovered in our galaxy a young star under education, writes the journal MNRAS.

Young star located 11 light years from Earth, has gained a mass of 30 solar masses and continues to collect material from the surrounding molecular cloud, becoming heavier. Watch massive young stars heavier than 8 solar masses in our galaxy is more complicated than the lungs. This is due to the fact that heavy stars short life and they tend to be very far away.

To detect this born star has been observing the infrared radiation into the surrounding cloud and to certain molecules inside it, which issued a so-called Keplerian disk of gas falling onto the young star.
