The belt was discovered around a brown dwarf known as LSR J1835+3259 and is 10 million times more intense than Jupiter's.
Scientists have observed a star swallowing a planet for the first time. Earth will meet a similar fate in 5 billion years.
The host star, TOI-5205, is just about four times the size of Jupiter, yet it has somehow managed to form a Jupiter-sized planet, which is quite surprising.
Astronomers have discovered a rocky exoplanet about a few dozen light years away from Earth with conditions that could make it habitable.
An international team of astronomers has confirmed the existence of K2-415b, an Earth-sized exoplanet circling an M dwarf star, just 72 light years away from Earth.
The video shows four dots of light moving in partial concentric circles around a black disk at their center. What you're actually looking at is a planetary system.
TOI 700 e has been confirmed orbiting inside the habitable zone of its star, TOI 700. TOI 700 is a small, cool star (known as an M dwarf star), located around 100 light-years away from us in the Dorado constellation.
Researchers confirmed an exoplanet using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope for the first time.Formally classified as LHS 475 b, the planet is almost exactly the same size as our own, clocking in at 99% of Earth's diameter.
Two exoplanets – Kepler-138 c and Kepler-138 d – appear to have oceans at least 1,600 km deep. That’s about 500 times deeper than the average depth of Earth’s oceans. However, they could be much warmer and under very high pressure.
The planet, nearly 10 times Earth’s mass, orbits a small, red-orange star about 200 light-years away. This planet is extremely hot, with an estimated temperature of 1,050 Celsius.
While observing the star system HD 23472 , researchers found three super-Earths and two super-Mercuries. This type last of exoplanet is still very rare—counting these two, there are only eight known super-Mercuries.
A new study suggests that many more planets may have large amounts of water than previously thought - as much as half water and half rock. All that water is probably embedded in the rock, rather than flowing as oceans.
The astronomers underlined that the star, these planets are orbiting is the second-coolest star found to host planets after TRAPPIST-1. They added that their finding is the second-most favorable habitable-zone terrestrial planet known so far.
The exoplanet is a gas giant, meaning it has no rocky surface and could not be habitable. The image shows how Webb's powerful infrared gaze can easily capture worlds beyond our solar system.
This observation of a gas giant planet orbiting a Sun-like star 700 light-years away provides important insights into the composition and formation of the planet.
