Clearest image ever is taken of violent star system that has winds blowing at 6 MILLION miles an hour



Astronomers have captured the high resolution image yet of one of the most famous star systems known to exist. 
The researchers found new and unexpected structures in the binary Eta Carinae system including an area between the two stars where high velocity stellar winds, travelling up to ten million kilometres (6.2 million miles) an hour, are colliding.
