PE31H: the sun of the new home
PE31H star is a G-type main-sequence star located in the Cygnus Arm - the inner rim of the Milky Way, a few light years away from the Sun. This yellow dwarf is brighter than approximately 85% of all stars observable in the galaxy and emits white light, similarly as the Earth's Sun.
Like other stars of its type, PE31H generates thermal energy in its core thanks to nuclear fusion, converting millions of tons of hydrogen into helium every minute. As the PE31H star is estimated to be middle-aged, this process will remain stable for at least 4 to 5 billion years.
The star comprises about 99,56% of the mass of the whole PE31H system and is thought to be heavy-element-rich. This determination can be confusing - primary chemical components are hydrogen and helium (accounting for over 98% of the star's mass), but relatively large amounts of carbon, oxygen, iron, neon and xenon can be found in PE31H's photosphere.
