Newborn star's X-rays shine light on our solar system's early days

An interesting report and 2:45 minute video to enjoy here. I note this in the report.

"Researchers didn't observe any X-rays coming from HOPS 383 outside of this X-ray flaring period. This implies that, outside of the flaring period, the object was at least 10 times fainter than when the flare was at its maximum, the researchers found, according to the statement. They also found that the flare was 2,000 times more powerful than the brightest X-ray flare that has been observed from our sun (an older, middle-aged star). Additionally, with stars this young, there is often (as there is with HOPS 383) a "cocoon" of gas and dust that surrounds the star and falls inward toward a disk enveloping the central star. As the material falls inward, there is also an "outflow" of material exiting the young system. Researchers observed so much outflow coming from HOPS 383 that they think the X-ray flare coming from this star could actually be powerful enough to strip electrons from atoms near the outflow's base. They think this process could be driving the outflow via magnetic forces, according to the statement."

HOPS 383 as a solar analog for the early Sun. Class 0 protostar stage with 0.5 solar masses reported and a disk mass close to 16650 earth masses, ref -, specifics in "Appendix E: Density model". The early Sun model(s) indicate our Sun could be spinning at the equator some 25 km/s or faster compared to the present spin about 2 km/s and emit more flares and x-rays too than the present Sun similar to HOPS 383. HOPS 383 indicates that much outflow observed. This could alter the disk evolution as well as any possible exoplanets that may or may not evolve in this *protostar*. The disk mass reported for HOPS 383 close to 16650 earth masses is not the same as used in protoplanetary disk evolution computer models for our early Sun and early solar system to create the planets and Oort Cloud.
