NASA Kepler satellite uncovers solar system with three Earth-sized planets

Indian scientists discover planet

Hence the planet will be known as EPIC 211945201b or K2-236b.

With this discovery, India is now among the league of countries that have discovered planets around stars.

One of them is just 160 light years from Earth and includes three planets that are remarkably similar in size to our own.

"Although the atmospheric temperature of red dwarf stars, around which these planets revolve, is 3,450 and 3,800 Kelvin respectively, nearly half the temperature of our Sun", the researchers said.

But the move also upends a longstanding legal and democratic norm that the executive branch will uphold existing laws. The 20 states filed [JURIST report ] their lawsuit in February, relying on the Supreme Court precedent in NFIB v.

In the end, also in the news is the discovery of three Earth-sized planets, made by Spanish astronomers. The discovery was made by measuring the mass of the planet using the indigenously designed "PRL Advance Radial-velocity Abu-sky Search" (PARAS) spectrograph integrated with 1.2m Telescope at PRL's Gurushikhar Observatory in Mount Abu, India.

Ahmedabad, have discovered an exoplanet that is larger than Neptune but smaller than Saturn.

In a conversation with Times of India, Chakraborty suggested that the planet was six hundred light years away from Earth and would be between Saturn and Neptune in size. One revolution around the sun planets do six and 20 days. The detection also adds to a sparse catalogue of 22 other confirmed exoplanet systems that have a mass and radius in this range, ISRO said.

On the other hand, only a few such accurate and powerful spectrographs exist around the world, the majority of which being in the United States and Europe.

(US-NK summit) Expectations running high for successful outcomes
But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang. North Korea's Kim landed Singapore's Changi Airport earlier on Sunday, in his longest trip overseas as head of state.

Scientists have claimed that the discovery will help in the understanding of the formation mechanism of super-Neptune or sub-Saturn kind of planets that are too close to the host star.

The planet is seven times nearer to the host star than the Earth-Sun distance which leads to its surface temperature to 600°C.

The universe keeps puzzling and intriguing curious humans as they persist in their hunt for habitable planets. Such a high temperature might make it uninhabitable for living creatures. The scientists estimate that over 60% of its mass could be made up of heavy elements like ice, silicates and iron. This is what they have so far discovered.
