The Webb telescope captures a new image of the star's wave-like rings

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has captured a new stunning image of a pair of stars surrounded by 17 wave-like rings.

Two stellar bodies make up the star system; one is known as a Wolf-Rayet star and will probably finish its life by collapsing into a super-dense black hole.

Due to stellar winds, they slam into the mass of gas and carbon being cast off by the Wolf Rayet.

thus creating the rings, which are captured by the James Webb Space Telescope in the present day.

Wolf-Rayet stars have the mass equivalent of 25 times that of our Sun.

At present, only roughly 600 of these rare stars have been discovered by scientists.
