Researchers claim that they have detected a new planet orbiting around two stars around 23 million light-years far from Earth.
Astronomers have found serious signs of a planet in an outer star system far in the Milky Way Galaxy. If this is 100% accurate, It will be the first planet found in the outer galaxy for mankind.
The discovery was published on Monday in the journal of Nature Astronomy and reveals modern techniques for searching outer worlds, and it could interestingly expand the exploration for further exoplanets for life.
The ‘planet of the hope’ is discovered in a galaxy named Messier 51, also identified as the Whirlpool Galaxy. It is a spiral galaxy and it is more than 20 million light-years far from us. In the 1990s scientists discovered the first exoplanet outside the solar system using various complicated detection techniques. Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and the Kepler Space Telescope have still been uncovered among NASA missions throughout the galaxy.
More than 4,000 exosolar planets have been confirmed after discovery but they are all inside the Milky Way Galaxy. Most of explained are nearly 3 thousand light-years far. Among many other alien planets identified yet, It is pretty sure that Whirlpool Galaxy is thousands of times far away.
This discovery brings more clarity and hope for the whole of humanity to further life. The Discovery of the exoplanet increases the curiosity about the existence of alien life in the universe. We have now facts and possibilities not only hope. Astronomers are working the whole night to spot and reveal the new mystery of the universe.
