In recent days, a team of scientists has discovered a planet 40% larger than Jupiter, which has incredibly survived the eruption of a star like the Sun. Now the white dwarf is orbiting as a result of the transformation of that star.
According to researchers, this space image will reveal what will happen in the very distant future to the solar system that inhabits Earth.
“The future of the Earth is not very promising because it is so close to the Sun (…) that if mankind wants to go to Jupiter or Saturn’s Moon before the Sun roasts the Earth in its brightest red phase, we will still do it. Can’t depend on, ”explained David Bennett, co-author of the research.
Now, let it happen, than 5 billion years, So now is the time to continue exploration in space and announce new discoveries as announced by NASA on October 25th.
With the help of the Chandra X-ray Laboratory, experts were able to see what the classification was, according to a report by the U.S. Space Agency published in the journal Natural Astronomy. The first possible planet to be discovered outside the Milky Way.
“The potential exoplanet candidate is in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also known as. Whirlpool Galaxy due to its unique profileNASA explained in a press release.
It should be noted, however, that this new candidate is considered an extraterrestrial, as it were outside the solar system, which is part of the Earth. First, a view outside the Milky Way that represents a milestone in space exploration.
According to NASA, the satellites discovered to date are mostly 3,000 light-years away from Earth, while the potential astronaut found on M51 is thousands of times farther away than the one found on the way. Paul, it will meet 28 million light years away.
“We are trying to open up a whole new field for the detection of other worlds by searching for planets at X-ray wavelengths, which is a technique for finding them in other galaxies,” said Rosenne de Stefano of the Astronomical Center. Harvard & amp; Smithsonian (CfA) Cambridge, Massachusetts.
To achieve this first point in the investigation, experts had to use a technique based on blocking its light from a possible planet when the light of a star passes in front of a glowing star. This method is based on “X-rays launched by a neutron star or a black hole, which extract gas from a closely orbiting asteroid.”
However, not everything is happy in this situation, because the discovery can only be taken as a possibility, and it seems that the hypothesis will not be valid for decades, meaning that the “great orbit of the candidate planet” will not return to cross in front of his binary partner For about 70 years”.
“Unfortunately, we have to wait decades to see another journey to make sure we see one planet (…) Due to uncertainty about how long it will take to orbit, we do not know when to look.Nia Imara, an associate professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, concluded.
