Discovered a star that "spits" water

Young stars like the Sun let the water spray from his half-speed about 124,000 miles per hour, made ​​the Herschel telescope.

Star bullets creates water that reach deep into interstellar space. It is more than 100,000 years, and is located in the constellation Perseus.

Star was taken from the Herschel observatory whose equipment is shot even thick layer of gas around it. It's not all. Water vapor is far from the star returns to the liquid state, at which point, as he says lead author Lars Christensen, the water is moving "about 80 times faster than bullets from machine guns."

The interesting part of this discovery is exploring possibilities of stars in terms of water resources, and if such phenomena are present distribution of water throughout the universe, it would mean a great discovery with regard to the importance of water for human life.
