Mysterious old stars that look oddly young found the fountain of youth via two means, new research finds. Some rely on vampirism to suck the life out of a companion star, while others are rejuvenated in cosmic collisions.

The strange stars exist among a tight group of stellar geezers in what's called a globular cluster. The whole setup called Messier 30 – an ancient knot of stars sitting 28,000 light-years away and within our Milky Way galaxy – is thought to have hit the scene about 13 billion years ago, when the universe was an infant.

I thought they were found in the Cruise and Travolta constellations?

That makes sense, I suppose they would be on the road to becoming black holes but 13 billion years is a long time. The nearest "host" stars must be just at that right distance.

I thought globular clusters is were stars are born... not a place of 13 billion year old star(s), but if it could pull off other stars it might live longer than a norm star does.

Only really huge stars make it to the blackhole stage, most just become brown dwarfs.
