The scientists were shocked by his discovery., Scientists reported on the discovery of water on the planet in the star system HR 8799 dot using the Keck telescope, writes Chronicle.info with reference to Know
Now it is known that exoplanet HR 8799 is dotted with a gas giant, which is several times more than Jupiter. In addition, the planet's atmosphere is water and not methane.
The scientists also noted that they could be observed with the help of two telescopic technologies at the Kesk Observatory. The first is adaptive optics. Eliminates the blur created by the Earth's atmosphere. The second is the high resolution NIRSPEC spectrometer, which works with infrared light.
It is known that at this time the astronomer managed to photograph a large number of exoplanets. The latest HR 8799 dot system is just the first system with multiple planets, which managed to take a picture thanks to the optics. However, the image is only the first step in this study.
After creating a snapshot, scientists can analyze it to study the chemical composition of the atmosphere.
"This type of technology is exactly what we want to use in the future to look for signs of life on a planet like Earth. We are not there yet, but we are moving forward, "says Dimitri Mau, associate professor of astronomy and co-author of a new study, adding that the discovery does not mean that the oceans are outside the planet. upper atmosphere is more than 800 degrees centigrade.
However, it is worth noting that the National Space Agency has revealed the moment of colonization of Mars.
In particular, the Ministry said that the unit built for this purpose will sit on the surface of the red planet on November 26.
"For the first time in six years, the new mission will land on Mars. On November 26, NASA's InSight Mars Rover landed on the red planet in 15 hours (Washington, ed.), "They say at NASA.
He also informed that the main objective of InSight Rover will be the study of the internal part of Mars. As the General Director of the bill of the Planetary Society of NGO Nye says, InSight will drill the land of Mars, which in turn will allow you to know more details about how it was formed, not only the red planet but also our native Earth.
