Strange things are happening in the Milky Way. Time is running out for the Hyades star cluster, which astronomers predict will soon disappear. The Hyades cluster is losing mass at an accelerated rate and has entered its twilight years. According to a new analysis of Gaia satellite data, the closest star cluster to our Solar System is currently being torn apart - disrupted not just by normal processes, but also by the gravitational pull of something massive we can't see. Hyades is the closest open cluster to Earth, located only 153 light-years away. Stay Tuned!
