Astronomers studying the fastest and most dramatic nova on record continue to find more puzzles than answers.

Novas are sudden, bright flashes of light in a two-star system created when a white dwarf, the core of a dying star that has run out of fuel, steals material from its companion star, causing the white dwarf to temporarily brighten. A nova known as V1674 Hercules found in a bizarre binary star system, composed of a White dwarf and a comminuted companion in the constellation Hercules – has been the subject of much interest ever since first erupted two years ago, on June 12, 2021. Astronomers were baffled by its light and energy, which rang like a bell, as well as its mysterious and intense winds that pumped stellar material in the surrounding space.
