Just in time for summer, sky-looking researchers have found a star so aquatically-powerful that's literally spraying the universe. The water-shooting star would have been better a cosmic hot tub for winter, however, as its streams are 180,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

So that's extremely hot water moving extremely quickly—and there's a galactic shit-ton of it. Don't worry, though, it's over 30 light years away.


The star, a baby "protostar" by universe standards, continues this space spraying process for thousands of years, creating shockwaves and accumulating puffy layers of dust around itself in the process. This entire thing makes me have to pee—pee shockwave-addled jets of fiery star water. And urine. [PhysOrg]
