Earlier this year Inquisition He announced the discovery of a huge planet floating for 20 light years from Earth. Unlike many planets, this unique celestial body does not bring into a star's orbit and runs alone through cosmic darkness identified by radio telescopes.
Now, astronomers have announced that in our galaxy we have discovered two more obscure planets – self-reliant, immigrant travelers who have been living at night for the night.
Correspondingly New scientistTwo free-floating planets were discovered by Polish astronomers at Warsaw University. It identified the planetary organs in the data from the Optical Gravitation Lensing Experiment (OGLE) in the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile.
"The theory of planetary formation suggests that there are free floating planets from their parents. Although they are not light or illuminated, they can be detected during gravitational microlentine events, "the team explained in a recent study published on the archive-press server's server.
Many planetary news are made using the so-called "transit method", but they are looking for the brightness of the star, while before you can see an orbital planet (transit). Inquisition As we have already reported, it is very easy to find glossy planets.
This is because the only heavenly nomads do not pass into the star, they can transit and temporarily turn off, thus warning the astronomers themselves. Scientists rely on gravitational microlending – an astronomical phenomenon that sheds light on the hidden planets when they cross roads with stars from the stars of the planet.
As the earth travels along the light of the distant stars, its gravitational force causes the star to shine and distort. Futurism. This effect can be detected by Earth observers and may lead to the detection of exoplanetics, otherwise they will not be detected.
This technique has been used before our solar system, even to find the planets outside the Border Line. Inquisition at the beginning of this year.
That technique helped OGLE get one of the brightest planets on the 16th of October, 2017. Later, it was discovered as a planetary organ through post-observatory observation. Maternity Payments.
This object, called OGLE-2017-BLG-0560, is very large and can be up to 20 times the weight of Jupiter, "the Jupiter-Plateau on a galactic disk or a brown-colored sip."
The team, who was interested in this stunning success, went through the OGLE archive and left another wolf. This planet, known as OGLE-2012-BLG-1323, was originally discovered on August 21, 2012, but it has just passed through the cracks and is already out of focus.
Unlike finding the 2017, the attack is much smaller – in fact, it is the smallest planet in the universe alone and has a moderate mass of land between Neptune and Earth.
Although astronomers say that they can take the star as a star and a star on the Milky Way, only dozens of bright planets have been discovered.
