Astronomers found the planet more largely than Jupiter by 13 times


The exoplanet of the huge sizes was found in the double system including the gone-out star. Scientists of the Brazilian Federal university Rio - the Grandee - to - Norte found the huge gas planet which exceeds the sizes of Jupiter by 13 times. Writes Naked-science about it. The planet is located in very old double system where one of stars already "died" and turned into the dim white dwarf. To find a celestial body, astronomers monitored changes in cycle times of couple of stars of the KIC 10544976 system in the Cygnus constellation. For this purpose they used data of land observatories and the Kepler space telescope. As a result it was succeeded to find out that the system includes two old stars - red and white dwarfs - which rotate around the general center of masses. In the same system there is also a giant exoplanet which, perhaps, appeared already at final stages of evolution of a system. "Perhaps, it appeared from the substance which is thrown out by one of stars at transformation into the white dwarf", - one of authors of a research noted. Earlier it was reported that the planet with a storm of planetary scale, clouds from iron and silicate was found. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
