According to space experts, the rate of spinning is believed to slow down as a star ages, but new findings announced at the TESS Science Conference are challenging the theory.
The breakthrough study hypothesises that some stars speed up during the halfway point in their lifetime. Some experts have considered this as the midlife turning point of stars.
Discoveries were based off the star 94 Aquarii aa, which seems to have sped up while currently towards the twilight years of its lifespan.
Other scientists expect new challenges with the unexpected discovery, which may debunk theories of testing the age of a star through its spin factor.
