A French scientist accidentally declared a piece of sausage a star

A renowned French scientist has apologized for posting a photograph of what he called “the closest star to the Sun.”

Claiming to be the camera of the James Webb Telescope, scientist Etienne Klein tweeted a photo of a Spanish sausage last week, but captioned it as a newly discovered star.

At the same time, he said that this is the closest star to the Sun, which is located at a distance of 4.2 light years from Earth. Etienne claimed that the image was taken by the James Webb telescope, adding that a new world is discovered every day.

His post has been retweeted thousands of times and users have also commented. However, Etienne soon admitted to users that the photo is not a star, but a sausage on a black background.

Etienne Klein apologized to users, saying that his intention was to convince people that we should be wary of images that arouse suspicion just by looking at them.
