Echography of young stars reveals their evolution
We recently revealed a connection between the pulsational properties of pre-main sequence stars and their relative evolutionary stage. The picture shows that the younger and, hence, still larger the pre-main sequence star is, the slower it pulsates. The further a young star evolves towards the zero-age main sequence (i.e., the onset of hydrogen core burning), the faster it pulsates.
