** in javascript? [closed]

This question shows the usage of **var = new Object(); and that's something totally new for me.

Since I didn't notice in any of the answers, that the double-star is not something JS related, question arose.

<strong>What is the double-star ** used for in JavaScript?</strong>



In that context it means "I am failing to add bold text to a code section in Markdown"
