Magnetic white dwarf star. Computer illustration of the strongly magnetic, ultra-massive white dwarf EUVEJ0317-855 (blue, lower left) and its larger, cooler companion star (upper left). The white dwarf rotates rapidly, causing its magnetic field (curved blue lines) to accelerate streams of particles (far left, upper right) to very high speeds, approaching the speed of light.
