How Do Stars Get Kicked Out of Globular Clusters?

   04 Dec 19:00:05  |  Universe Today

Globular clusters are densely-packed collections of stars bound together gravitationally in roughly-shaped spheres. They contain hundreds of thousands of stars. Some might contain millions of stars. Sometimes globular clusters (GCs) kick stars out of their gravitational group. How does that work? There are a few things that can cause GCs to eject stars. Gravitational scattering, …
