Thanks to its instruments, the space telescope saw a real scientific treasure – a huge star cluster Terzan 4.

Many objects in space simply cannot be seen and studied well with the help of ground-based telescopes, because the Earth's atmosphere interferes with them. This applies in particular to huge star clusters called globular clusters, including Terzan 4. This cluster is an ideal candidate for studying with space telescopes, writes Space.

Many of the known globular star clusters are found in the halo of the Milky Way. This is a part of our galaxy that is poorly visible from Earth. But the globular cluster Terzan 4 is not even in a halo, but in a part of the galaxy that is very difficult for astronomers to study. But the sensitive instruments of the Hubble Space Telescope were able to capture this collection of stars that sparkle like real jewels.

Terzan 4 is difficult to see, because this cluster is located near the center of the galaxy, and the dust and gas that are concentrated here make it very difficult to observe this cluster. Scientists believe Hubble's observations will help learn more about how the stars in this cluster change over time.

Globular star clusters are spherical in shape and contain millions of stars that are connected by gravity. They are all basically the same age, although they have a different color. And the color of a star can reveal its true age.

For example, in these clusters you can find stars called blue stragglers or blue stragglers. Scientists have recently found that such objects appear as a result of the collision of two old stars

And such collisions in globular clusters occur often, because the average distance between stars in such places is about 1 light year. For comparison, the nearest star from the Sun, Proxima Centauri, is 4 light years away.

As Focus already wrote, scientists have found a way to see what neutron stars, the densest objects in the universe, are made of .
