Scientists have found that two new Earth-like planets around one of the nearest stars inside our galactic neighborhood. The planets are found just 12.5 light years away circling the Teegarden star - a red dwarf person towards the group of stars of Aries, as per the study published in the Journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.
It's surface temperature is 2,700 degrees Celsius, and its mass is only one-tenth that of the Sun, specialists said. Despite the fact that it is so close to, its faintness obstructed its disclosure until 2003. "We have been watching this star for a long time to search for intermittent varieties in its speed," said Mathias Zechmeister, a scientist at the University of Gottingen in Germany.
The perceptions demonstrated that two planets are circling it, them two like the planets in the internal piece of the Solar System. They are only somewhat greater than the Earth and are arranged in the 'livable zone' where water can exist as a fluid, as indicated by the scientists. "It is conceivable that the two planets are a piece of a bigger framework," said Stefan Dreizler, an analyst at the University of Gottingen. Photometric battles on this star have been completed with the Carlos Sanchez Telescope at the Teide Observatory in Spain and with the system of telescopes of the Las Cumbres Observatory, among others.
"These investigations show that the sign of the two planets can't be because of the movement of the star, despite the fact that we couldn't identify the travels of the two new planets," said Victor Sanchez Bejar, from the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC) in the Canary Islands. For the travel strategy to be suitable, the planets must go over the essence of the excellent plate and square a portion of the light from the star during a brief timeframe, which implies that it must lie on a line joining the Sun and the Earth. This fortunate arrangement happens for just a little division of planetary frameworks, scientists said. The kind of star to which the Teegarden star has a place comprises of the littlest for which scientists can gauge the majority of their planets with current innovation.
