Mystery planet located 363 light-years away

This is a very large planet and very close to a super-fast star. There is no sign of the origin of this System and scientists cannot explain what they appear.

Something incognito happens to us 363 light-years from us, more precisely in the constellation of Centaur. So far, scientists believed by planetary systems to form through a gas and dust nightclub, in turn, orbited a newly formed star. Even when they are planned, they are already formed, astronomers argued that for millions of years are always known as disk, which served as a cradle of planets.

It turns out that scientists at the Max Planck Institute find a very young planet about 14 million years old, orbiting a star with no signs of a protoplanetary disk that has given rise to these celestial bodies. This is all about this planet-forming model on which science was based. Since it is such a large planet it is a very dense well in rotation.

The planet named HIP65426b, is a giant planet, with more than 6 to 12 times per mass of Jupiter, if this gaseous giant had the mass of an orange, this exo planet would “weigh” the same as a brick. This is at least 1,327 ° C and orbits its star once every 600 Earth years, because it is 92 times further away from HIP65426 than the Earth is from the Sun. Thus, it will be three times the distance between Neptune and the Sun. For More information about the journey of 363 years at the same speed of light.

This was, until the information, the first planet discovered by the SPHERE, an instrument of the Very Large Telescope, mounted in Chile, with the seal of the European Observatory of the South. It obtained a direct imagery, a very rare form of finding celestial bodies for the Solar system. He was able to find water vapor and reddish clouds very similar to those observed on Jupiter. Again, look at an atmosphere from which you are expected to better study the size of the particles that make up as well as their chemical composition. It is only seen following the signs of the origin of HIP65426b.

However, it is not just HIP65426b that intrigues scientists, a star it orbits, a HIP65426, is also very peculiar. It is a type A2 star with 2 times the mass of the Sun and almost 3,000 ° C warmer. And, like the Sun, HIP65426 also revolves around itself, but with a distinct feature, it is 150 times faster than the Sun in this rotation, something unique to a star is not in the influence of the gravitational field of another star. This is more characteristic that contradicts the model of formation of production plans for the scientific community until now.

Scientists already have, however, a theory that may explain the strange world of HIP65426b. It is possible that this planet was formed very close to its star at the same time that another massive planet was born. That is, during the first years of life, HIP65426b may have approached so much of its sister planet that it was pushed into a position it occupies today. Meanwhile, the other planet may have approached the star and started a movement that started it spinning very fast. This planet could then have been consummated by the star, which is why it could no longer observe.
