HD 140283

Fr.: HD 140283   

An extremely → metal-poor and high-velocity F3-type → subgiant with → apparent visual magnitude 7.205 ± 0.02. It has other designations, among which BD-10 4149, GJ 1195, HIP 76976, and SAO 159459. HD 140283 is situated in the solar neighborhood at some 200 → light-years from the Earth (→ trigonometric parallax 17.15 ± 0.14 mas) in the constellation → Libra. Its color E(B - V) = 0.000 yields a visual → absolute magnitude  MV = +3.377. Its → surface temperature is Teff = 5777 K. Its iron and oxygen surface → chemical abundancees relative to hydrogen are [Fe/H] = -2.40 and [O/H] = -1.67, making it the most metal-poor star so far known (2021). Using precise observational data, an age of 14.46 ± 0.8 Gyr has been derived for this star. Within the errors, the age of HD 140283 does not conflict with the age of the → Universe, 13.77 ± 0.06 Gyr, obtained from the → cosmic microwave background radiation and the → Hubble constant. HD 140283 must have formed soon after the → Big Bang and is the oldest known star. This is why it is sometimes nicknamed the → Methuselah star (H. E. Bond et al., 2013, arxiv.1302.3180).

The star's name in the → Henry Draper system

HD 43317
     
HD 43317

Fr.: HD 43317   

A → hot star of → apparent visual magnitude 6.61 lying in the constellation → Orion. HD 43317 has a B3.5V → spectral type and has no detected binary companion. Its chemical surface abundances agree with the solar abundances, but with some co-rotating He abundance spots at the stellar surface. The CoRoT satellite revealed that HD 43317 is a → hybrid pulsator of → Slowly Pulsating B star (SPB)/ → Beta Cephei type. Its → rotation period is 0.897673(4) days. Zeeman signatures in the Stokes V profiles of HD 43317 are clearly detected and rotationally modulated, which proves that this star exhibits an oblique magnetic field. The strength of the dipolar magnetic field is of the order of 1 kG to 1.5 kG (Buysschaert et al., 2017, A&A 605, A104).

HD 5980
     
HD 5980

Fr.: HD 5980   

A remarkable → binary star system composed of → massive stars that is associated with NGC 346, the largest → H II region + OB star cluster in the → Small Magellanic Cloud. HD 5980 is a rather complex system because it consists of at least three stars: two stars form an → eclipsing binary with a period of 19.266 days, while the third component, an → O star, is detected by means of a set of absorption lines. Whether or not the third star is physically bound to the eclipsing binary remains currently unclear. HD 5980 underwent an → LBV-type event in August 1994. Before the LBV eruption, both components of the eclipsing binary already showed emission lines in their spectra and were thus classified as → Wolf-Rayet stars. However, as shown by the analysis of the spectra taken during and after the LBV event, at least the star that underwent the eruption was not a classical, helium-burning, Wolf-Rayet object, but rather a WNha star. This means a rather massive star with substantial amounts of hydrogen present in its outer layers. These WNha stars have → stellar wind properties that are intermediate between those of extreme → Of stars and classical → WN Wolf-Rayet stars.

HD 93129
     
HD 93129

Fr.: HD 93129   

A multiple → O-type star in the → Trumpler 14 cluster, which consists of at least three components. The main component, HD 93129A, is of spectral type O2 If*, a very rare hot star and the closest known O2 star (Walborn et al. 2002). It is one of the most luminous stars known. HD 93129B, lying 2.7 arcsec apart, is an O3.5 V((f+)) type. Recent → HST observations have shown that component A is itself probably a double or → binary star with a separation of 0.055 arcsec.

HD 97950
     
HD 97950

Fr.: HD 97950   

The core of the Galactic → giant H II region, → NGC 3603. It is a multiple object composed of several → massive stars with a collective → spectral type of around WN6+O5. One of the stars, → NGC 3603A-1, is a double-eclipsing binary with an orbital period of 3.77 days. The component masses are 116 Msun for the primary and 89 Msun for the secondary, respectively. The primary WN6ha component of A1 is the most massive star ever directly weighed. A second star, C, has newly been identified, which has been classified as an SB1 binary, and in which only the primary (WN6ha) component is visible. The third star, B, shows constant radial velocities over the observed time interval, and therefore is most likely not a binary. While the primary component of C might have a mass similar to or even greater than that of A1's primary, it is possible that star B, be the most massive member in NGC 3603 and, therefore, the most massive main-sequence star known in the Galaxy (Schnurr et al., 2008, MNRAS, 389, L38).

HD number
  عدد ِ HD   
adad-e HD (#)

He II line
  خط ِ He II   
xatt-e He II

Fr.: raie He II   

Any of the → spectral lines arising from → singly ionized helium in the atmosphere of → O-type and → Wolf-Rayet stars. He II lines are chiefly in absorption, but some of them, such as 4686 Å occur in emission in hotter stars. The presence of He II → absorption lines separates O types from → B-type stars. A number of these He II lines belong to the → Pickering series involving transitions with → principal quantum numbern = 4 and higher. Although the n = 3-4 (4686 Å) transition also belongs to ionized helium and often occurs in these hot stars, it does not belong to the Pickering series because it has a lower landing level quantum number (n = 3). The same goes for n = 2-5 (4026 Å).

helium; → line.

He-strong star
  ستاره‌ی ِ هلیوم-سترگ   
setâre-ye heliom-sotorg

Fr.: étoile forte en hélium   

An early → B-type star showing helium lines with abnormally large equivalent widths. The surface → chemical abundances of He-strong stars are influenced by the presence of a strong → magnetic field, resulting in a He overabundance that typically varies in strength over the stellar surface. Examples include HR 735, HD 184927, and CPD-62°2124.

helium; → strong; → line.

He-weak star
  ستاره‌ی ِ هلیوم-نزار   
setâre-ye heliom-nazâr

Fr.: étoile faible en hélium   

A → chemically peculiar star with very weak helium lines. Examples include 3 Sco, HD 176582, HD 217833, HR 2949, and HD 21699. The He-weak stars do not form a homogeneous group. Some of them display intense Si, or Ti and Sr lines, and are considered a hot extension of the magnetic → Ap/Bp stars. Others show overabundances of P and Ga, typically noted for → HgMn stars. The star HD 139160 belongs to the non-magnetic subgroup of He-weak stars.

helium; → weak; → line.

Fr.: capacité thermique, ~ calorifique   

The ratio of an amount of heat, dQ, transferred to a body in some process to the corresponding change in the temperature of the body: C = dQ/dT. The heat capacity depends upon the mass of the body, its chemical composition, thermodynamic state, and the kind of process employed to transfer the heat. The word "capacity" may be misleading because it suggests the essentially meaningless statement "the amount of heat a body can hold," whereas what is meant is the heat added per unit temperature rise. → specific heat.
