Scientists using the Spitzer Infrared Space Telescope detected tiny specks of matter, or particles, consisting of stacked buckyballs. They found the particles around a pair of stars called "XXOphiuchi," 6,500 light-years from Eart --enough to fill the equivalent in volume to 10,000 Mount Everests.
#BAFact: When massive stars are born, their UV light and fierce winds carve huge cavities in the surrounding gas.
Many stars are born in vast gas clouds, light years across. If the newborn stars are massive and hot, they can blast out huge amounts of ultraviolet radiation and blow strong super-solar winds. This eats away at the gas and dust in the cloud from the inside out, turning the cloud into more of a soap bubble.
The image below is in the far infrared and shows Barnard 3, one such cloud being dissolved by the intense energy of the star in its center (the one surrounded by the reddish glow). Mind you, this cloud is 250 trillion (250,000,000,000,000) kilometers across!

There is a good chance that you don't like me, but there is a better chance that I don't care.
If I'm not insulting you, I'm probably not aware that you exist.
