Mysterious ripples found racing through planet-forming disc
Paris (ESA) Oct 08, 2015
Using images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and ESO's Very Large Telescope, astronomers have discovered never-before-seen structures within a dusty disc surrounding a nearby star. The fast-moving wave-like features in the disc of the star AU Microscopii are unlike anything ever observed, or even predicted, before now. The origin and nature of these features present a new mystery for astronomers to explore. The results are published in the journal Nature on 8 October 2015. AU Microscopii, ... read more

Watching an exoplanet in motion around a distant star
A team of astronomers has given us our best view yet of an exoplanet moving in its orbit around a distant star. A series of images captured between November 2013 to April 2015 shows the exoplanet b ... more
Study: 'Hot Jupiter' exoplanets formed extremely rapidly
For years, astronomers have been stumped by a rare type of exoplanet known as "hot Jupiters." Hot Jupiters are gas giants which orbit unusually close to their stars. ... more
