Mexico Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) has discovered a superneater around the world's second nearest star star, Barnard.
For the first time, astronomers determine the type of propagation by means of radial velocity. "After careful analysis, 99 percent of our planet is proved to be reliable," says Ignasi Ribas, director of the study published in the Tabigat magazine.
The Star of the Barn is six light years from the "blue dwarf" of the "blue planet".
However, according to the scientist, it is necessary to collect additional information, as the natural change in the starlight caused by sunlight may have the same effect as those identified.
Using high accuracy spectrometers such as Sarmone, scientists at Calar Alto Observatory have used the effect of the star's effect to measure how the object's speed changes in the vision line.
When the object is removed from us, the light we observe becomes stronger and more red. Instead, when the star approaches us, the light becomes much stronger and brighter, "Ignaty Ribas said.
After reassessing all combined measurements, he explained that in 233 days there was a clear signal, which means that the star Barnard reaches 1.2 meters per second.
The best understanding of this phenomenon is that the planet is transformed into a star orbit, "he said in a CSIC statement.
The candidate planet is named Barnard b or GJ 699 b, with at least 3.2 terrains of superdier, with its owner breathing in the distance at 233 days every day.
The absence of the atmosphere, the extoplant temperature can be minus 170 degrees Celsius; It is unlikely that there will be liquid water on this surface of the planet.
