Luminous Blue Variable Star

UC Santa Barbara

Sparkling with an exceptional blue-toned brilliance and exhibiting wild variations in both brightness and spectrum, the luminous blue variable (LBV) is a relatively rare and still somewhat mysterious type of star. Thanks to special, data-intensive supercomputer modeling conducted at Argonne...
