Incredibly rare star mergers may have created strange stars

Two particularly strange stars may have formed in a lucky collision, according to new research.

What makes these two things stars anomalies are the high levels of carbon and oxygen on the surface of their atmospheres. Those elements are left behind when a star burns off its helium, but that process takes place in the star’s core and ends long before carbon and oxygen begin to dominate the star’s atmosphere. Curiously, these stars still seem to run through helium despite their strange surfaces.
