An international group of astrologers for the first time got to see almost formed the germ of the enormous exoplanets. Watching the star in the constellation Taurus, scientists said separated illumination of stars the radiance of the future of the planet.
As they say in the article, published in the journal Nature, to see the birth of a new planet, a group of astrologers from the United States and Australia have managed with the help of installed in a Chilean Observatory, Las Campanas Observatory "Magellan". Space object, increasing with the help of gas absorption and dust, is the star LkCa 15, which turned into 450 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Taurus.
"That's the 1st irrefutable discovery of the planet, which has not yet completed its formation. The difference in brightness between the star and protoplanetary comparable to how a light bulb brighter than a Firefly. The radiation of the planets in the highest degree difficult to separate from the illumination of the stars, but the fact that we focused on a specific part of the range, where the planet is shining brightly, we were able to see it", says Kate Follett from Stanford University.
Convinces the scientist, this discovery has brought the population of the earth to the confirmation of the hypothesis that the formation of planets occurs inside the flat gas-dust disk, filled with small dust particles and dense with clubs and ends after a series of conflicts planetesimals - "embryos" of the planets about the size of Vesta or Ceres, and large comets and asteroids.
What happens after the dust turning in a not very large clumps size in centimeter, astrophysics is not yet present. There are several different doctrines, to check which until recently was impossible. Directly as a consequence of researchers have reinforced the search for newborn planets and their "germs".
