    It is a mistake to classify all stars with such rigidity as there can be a number of x-factors involved which nudge them one way or another off of the "main sequence".

    I can't find the reference at present but a few years ago a star went nova or supernova (?) but was thought to have been a stable star with billions of years of life left in it. No explanation was found.

    There is still a lot we do not know about the universe and saying everything about it rigidly follows set rules can be a mistake.

    This is an article from 2006. It has many of the facts about type Ia supernova wrong. This supposed new kind of supernova does not appear to be a serious problem, given the wealth of type Ia supernova research done before and after this result.

    thanks for the replies,
    Cyberia, Totally agree with your comments.
    The 'laws' of the universe,in my humble opinion,are not cast in stone.however,i certainly dont dispute what the observations of the universe tell us,that experiments prove certain things.However, i can see how something could appear one way,but could be totally different in 'reality'..(.thats really more to do with my reasoning about these things.)
    Further,with reference to the stable star going supernova,i would be interested on more info,if you,or anyone else has more info on that...i do recall reading it too.


    PhysBang,thanks for the update.
    Yes,I also noted the data was incorrect in some respects.The new data here,can be classified as just a variable quantity when assessing the data of the individual supernova classification.(Excuse my grammar)
