Hubble detects giant ‘cannonballs’ shooting from star

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has detected superhot blobs of gas, each twice as massive as the planet Mars, being ejected near a dying star. The plasma balls are zooming so fast through space it would take only 30 minutes for them to travel from Earth to the moon. The fireballs present a puzzle to astronomers, because the ejected material could not have been shot out by the host star.
