Machine Learning Method for Star Identification (E)
Scientists at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics have developed a new method based on machine learning by which a particular star can be identified from a star cluster..with greater accuracy and ease. This method can be used on star clusters of all ages, distances and densities. This method has been used to identify hundreds of additional stars for six different clusters up to 18,000 light years away …. Studying stars and how they evolve is the cornerstone of astronomy.
