Asteroid impacts may be vital for exoplanet to support life, study says

Past asteroid impacts on a soil, but a new study suggests a 'Goldilocks' impact from a space could be an important ingredient in supporting life on other planets. The research, which The planet, two events happen: the material from the object is added to the exoplanet's mass and "Given sufficient bombardment, planets below the gap would be expected to loose …

How two Nobel Prize winners discovered the first exoplanet

The Nobel Prize for Physics 2019 was awarded on Tuesday partly to Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz for an amazing discovery they made in 1995: the first discovery of a planet orbiting a distant star similar to our Sun. Before, the only planets on the map were the eight in our own solar system. We did not even know if …

Newly discovered bizarre orbit of the massive exoplanet [Video]

By W. M. Keck Observatory 1. September 2019 Illustration of an exoplanet. Credit: Ricardo Ramirez The triple mass of Jupiter, a unique planet, swings on a bizarre path around its star. Astronomers have discovered a planet three times the size of Jupiter's mass moving on a long, egg-shaped path around its star. If this planet were somehow built into our …
