FuchsiaStars: What Does it Mean? by Randy Nash
Fuchsia Star taken literally is an enigma.  The light from stars comes from hydrogen gases exploding. The light from a star when examined under a spectrometer consists of a set of discrete colors across the spectrum. These individual colors when combined produce white light.

In our expanding universe, stars are either moving towards the earth or away. Light from a star that is approaching the earth will be observed with the individual colors shifted higher in frequency. The colors shift from red towards blue. This is called a blue star. The speed the star is traveling towards the earth can be measured from the amount of color shift. When a star is moving away from the earth, the light spectral components move lower in frequency from blue to red. This is called the red shift. Most stars are moving away from the earth and are red. Using assumptions of the origin of the universe, the amount of red shift can be used to measure the distance the star is from earth in light years.  If a star was stationary, and not moving , it would be a white star. If a star is moving towards the earth, it is a blue star, and if it is moving away from the earth it is a red star.

Now Fuchsia is made of the combination of red and blue. How can a star be red and blue at the same time. Is it moving towards the earth and away from the earth at the same time? Does this mean a Fuchsia Star cannot exist? But what if one is observed, what does that say about our universe? Would it would mean the basic models and science we use to understand the universe is incomplete, or wrong. Could a Fuchsia Star be an undiscovered star powered not by hydrogen gas, but by some other unknown matter?
A Fuchsia Star can exist in theory, in its own universe ruled by a completely different physics.
