First discovery of a magnetic field in a normal delta Scuti star

Two types of pulsating stars exist among stars with a mass between 1.5 and 2.5 solar masses: the delta Scuti stars and the gamma Doradus stars. Theory tells us that when such stars have a surface temperature between 12,000 and 12,900° F (6,600 and 7,100° C), they can have both types of pulsations, i.e., they …
