ESO image of the nebula AB7. AB7 is a binary star system found in one of the nearby Magellanic Cloud galaxies, consisting of one WR-star - highly evolved massive star - and a mid-age massive companion of spectral type O. These exceptional stars have very strong stellar winds : they continuously eject energetic particles some 10 to 1,000 million times more intensely than our sun. The surface temperature is in excess of 120,000 degrees, maybe the universe's hottest star.
