Is it possible for a sun-like star to emit a gamma-ray burst?
« on: February 23, 2017, 09:23:13 PM »
So I was watching a space documentary about gamma-ray bursts, and at one point they said that a massive star rotating very fast is part of the reason a gamma-ray burst is emitted.

So if a sun-like star spins fast enough, could it emit a gamma-ray burst?

rip itself apart.

If it would, then why hasn't Archenar or VFTS-102?

no the sun would have to be massive enough to go supernova to produce a grb

Our Sun also produce gamma rays bursts, but not with the intensity of GBRs stars
