The star is located in the Small Magellanic cloud.
Astronomers using the Very large telescope got the jet, who was thrown out of a newborn star in the Small Magellanic cloud. As reported by the European southern Observatory to observe this event outside the milky Way were able for the first time, they usually escaped its dust environment.
It is noted that the jet «Herbig-Haro 1177» or HH 1177 was thrown out by the star, the mass of which exceeds 12 times that of the sun. This is one of the longest fixed jets, it is up to 33 light years.
The researchers note that such jets result from the action of the same mechanisms in massive and low-mass stars. This means that massive stars can be formed in the same way as low-mass.
