Photograph of a very-small red-dwarf star
The Hubble space telescope has provided us a perfect photograph of a very-small red-dwarf star in the closest solar system to our own, the Centauri system, which is a mere 4.2 light years distant. Is the tiny sphere that we see here, of one of the smallest of the red-dwarf stars, a sphere where nuclear fission takes place? We see the star surrounded by atomic material that glows dimly in the star's plasma sphere. Or do we see in this image an example of a tiny star that is powered by low-level plasma fusion? Most likely, that's what we see.
