Sciencetist Descover Wild Star system

Astronomy and Astrophysics 


 Scientists   have   just   discovered   something   very   wild   in   a   distant   star   system

 Astronomers   have   discovered   the   "unior"   of   the   universe.  

 strange   science  

Scientists have theorized that  it   is  possible  for two planets to share the same orbit while  revolving  around a star,  but   it   is   extremely   rare,   resulting  in a  very   strange  phenomenon called "Trojan  planets",  but there  has  been  no   evidence   that  this configuration  occurs  in the vast  universe.  

 That   is,   until   now.  A recent discovery in a star system about 370 light-years  from Earth  provides  strong evidence  for  a Trojan  planetary  system, according to CNN. If confirmed,  this  discovery would be the first such system  discovered  by astronomers.  


A team of  astronomers,  published  in the journal Astronomy and  Astrophysics,   has   discovered  this  likely Trojan  planetary  system  near  PDS 70, a young star in the constellation  Centaurus.  The   data   show   that  a  giant   gaseous  exoplanet  three times the size of Jupiter,  designated  PDS 70b,  orbits  the star  in the same  orbit   along   with   a   'debris   cloud'.  

Astronomers think this "dust  clump"   could  be  material  from  a  newly   formed   planet,  or, in another  grim  possibility, the  remnants  of a  torn  apart   planet.  

 "The   Exotroyans...  have  always  been like  unicorns.   They  are  theoretically   accepted  to  exist,  but no one has ever  discovered  them," said Jorge  Lilobox,  a researcher at  Madrid's   Center  for Astrobiology  and one of the study's co-authors, in a statement.

Trojan bodies are rocky asteroids that exist  in  the same orbit as  a   planet,  and are  fairly  common in our  solar   system,  such as  asteroids  in  the same orbit as Jupiter, but scientists  theorize  that  two planets  could  be  in  the same orbit of their  respective   stars.  


"We can imagine that a planet can share its orbit with thousands of asteroids as in the case of Jupiter, but it is mind blowing to me that planets could share the same orbit," said Olga Balsalobre-Ruza, the study's first author and a postdoc at the Centre for Astrobiology, in the statement. 

 To find any possible Trojan planets, researchers analyzed data from Chile's Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array of radio telescopes, also known as ALMA, to probe the PDS 70 system.  


When researchers looked at one of its planets, PDS 70b, they found cloud debris in the same area where a Trojan planet would conceivably exist, CNN reports, and the dust cloud has twice the mass of our Moon. 

 To further cement their findings, the astronomers will have to wait until 2026 in order to see how far this possible Trojan planet system has orbited around its star. 

 If confirmed, the system will help astronomers gain a better understanding of Trojan exoplanets and their formation — and show, once again, that the universe always has new surprises.  Exoplanet   details:   Scientists   release   stunning   video   of   exoplanet   orbiting   distant   star
