New Delhi: On one hand, millions of people have come to death due to Coronavirus wreaking havoc all over the world, on the other hand, a new planet is being born 520 light-years away from Earth. Scientists have captured rare pictures of the formation of this new planet through the European Southern Observatory’s very large telescope, which has a wonderful view of the cosmic ring with the first glimpse of the new planet.
In the photograph taken through the telescope, researchers have seen such a bright orange ring, where the possibility of a new planet is being formed. According to the study published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, this may be the first clear evidence of the existence of a planet. This research team is led by astronomer Anthony Boccaletti of PSL University in Paris. This team wanted to see this emerging world of the universe very closely, in which the most spectacular multimedia view has been seen so far.
Astronomers said that this newborn planet is forming a circle of dust and gas around the young star named AB Aurigae, which is about 520 light-years away from Earth, in the Auriga Planetarium. Scientists know that the planet is born when the cold gas and dust around the stars collide with each other for millions of years, after which a dusty circle or disk is formed there.
It is clear that with these new observations, scientists have got important data to understand the whole process of the formation of a planet. The objects of the new world formed in space produce waves like waves in the gas disk, which later shrink and turn into circles while orbiting the planet’s own star. In addition to making rounds, the newborn planet also collects gas in its growing body.
According to astronomer Anthony Boccaletti, in this way planets raise and collect gas and this creates a huge shell as we see in Jupiter and Saturn planets in the solar system. To make the gas atmosphere, it is necessary to bring gas from someplace and put it on the planet. We are sure that this is the process that is working for such planets.
Astronomer Boccaletti and his colleagues captured this form of interest-seeking camouflage with further information through spectro-polarimetric high-contrast Exoplanet Research (SPHERE), a special device on the giant telescope in Chile. SPHERE is designed to search for planets outside the solar system that revolve around stars other than the Sun. It also has a coronagraph which can erase the wandering light of the stars of these planets.
