BREAKING NOW!! Scientists: Earth-like planet discovered NEARBY, orbiting RED DWARF star!! Coming towards our solar system now! 11 LY away!

A planet the same size as Earth and with a similar temperature has been discovered.

Ross 128b was found orbiting a red dwarf 11 light years away from our own planet and is moving closer to us.

Scientists say its surface temperature may be ‘the closest known comfortable abode for possible life’.

Astronomers working with the European Southern Observatory’s High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) at the La Silla Observatory in Chile found that the red dwarf star Ross 128 is orbited by a low-mass ‘exoplanet’ every 9.9 days.

The Earth-sized world is expected to be temperate, with a surface temperature that may also be close to that of the Earth. Ross 128 is the ‘quietest’ nearby star to host such a temperate exoplanet.

Ross 128 b is very near its star, thus the short orbit. But it doesn't get broiled because the red dwarf star is cool. The star is also quiet, meaning no radiation flare-ups.

more on this! unbelievable!! gasp

Article: We might just have spotted our new home – or someone else's.

A newly discovered star, known as Ross 128 b, has been held up as our most likely neighbour that could support life. And conditions there look much nicer than the other stars in our neighbourhood.

That has led to excitement across the world amid the possibility that we've found an entirely new one. If we have, it'll not only offer the potential to see what another planet like our own looks like – but potentially to meet the aliens that live there, or to move there ourselves.

Why are people so excited about Ross 128 b?

Because it looks a lot like us. And if it is like us, then it's likely to be both a decent place for aliens to potentially live, and a possible future home for ourselves.

The obvious things are that the planet is roughly the same size as ours, and might have a similar climate.


Nearby planet could be closest 'comfortable' place for supporting life

But what has got people especially excited is its star, Ross 128. That's a red dwarf – a type of sun that offers hope to scientists looking for exoplanets, but comes with some caveats.

Red dwarfs are good because they are cooler and more comfortable than our own star. That not only means that any life that is supported by them is more likely to flourish on planets that are closer, but it also means that they're easier for us to see, because there's not such a bright sun in the way.

New Earth-Size Planet Found Around Nearby Star. The potentially habitable world is called Ross 128b, and it sits just 11 light-years away

Astronomers found Ross 128b using the High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) instrument at the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla site in Chile. This instrument allows scientists to examine starlight and tease out the subtle gravitational effects of an orbiting planet.

After 12 years of scrutinizing patterns of the star’s brightness and movement, the team announced today that they had discerned a faint but consistent wobble in its rotation. This wobble is from a planet about 30 percent larger than Earth that is tugging the star slightly off center, the team reports today in a paper slated to appear in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

hiding


On May 12, 2017, researchers observing Ross 128 picked up mysterious signals using the Arecibo Observatory. Abel Méndez, an astrobiologist at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo, said the star was observed for ten minutes, during which time the wide-band radio signal was "almost periodic" and decreased in frequency.[24] On July 16, 2017, the strange signal, at a low frequency never heretofore observed from a red dwarf, was reported on Twitter by Méndez to have been "confirmed".

A team working with ESO’s High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) at the La Silla Observatory in Chile has found that the red dwarf star Ross 128 is orbited by a low-mass exoplanet every 9.9 days. This Earth-sized world is expected to be temperate, with a surface temperature that may also be close to that of the Earth. Ross 128 is the “quietest” nearby star to host such a temperate exoplanet.

“This discovery is based on more than a decade of HARPS intensive monitoring together with state-of-the-art data reduction and analysis techniques. Only HARPS has demonstrated such a precision and it remains the best planet hunter of its kind, 15 years after it began operations,” explains Nicola Astudillo-Defru (Geneva Observatory – University of Geneva, Switzerland), who co-authored the discovery paper.

Red dwarfs are some of the coolest, faintest — and most common — stars in the Universe. This makes them very good targets in the search for exoplanets and so they are increasingly being studied.

In fact, lead author Xavier Bonfils (Institut de Planétologie et d'Astrophysique de Grenoble – Université Grenoble-Alpes/CNRS, Grenoble, France), named their HARPS programme The shortcut to happiness, as it is easier to detect small cool siblings of Earth around these stars, than around stars more similar to the Sun [1].

ROSS 128 B: POTENTIALLY HABITABLE ALIEN PLANET IS HURTLING TOWARD US
ON 11/15/17 AT 6:00 AM


The new planet has been named Ross 128 b after its star, which is a small, quiet red dwarf just down the street from us in our Milky Way galaxy. Ross 128 b circles it every 10 days or so, since it is about 20 times closer to its star than the Earth is to our sun. The new planet is also about a third again as large as Earth.

The astronomers who spotted it think its temperature should be between -76 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit, which is pretty pleasant as exoplanets go. That said, they're not sure how long liquid water could last on Ross 128 b's surface, which would shape just how habitable they would consider it.

Same star had weird radio emissions detected

[link to phl.upr.edu]

Two weeks after these observations, we realized that there were some very peculiar signals in the 10-minute dynamic spectrum that we obtained from Ross 128 (GJ 447), observed May 12 at 8:53 PM AST (2017/05/13 00:53:55 UTC). The signals consisted of broadband quasi-periodic non-polarized pulses with very strong dispersion-like features. We believe that the signals are not local radio frequency interferences (RFI) since they are unique to Ross 128 and observations of other stars immediately before and after did not show anything similar.

We do not know the origin of these signals but there are three main possible explanations: they could be (1) emissions from Ross 128 similar to Type II solar flares, (2) emissions from another object in the field of view of Ross 128, or just (3) burst from a high orbit satellite since low orbit satellites are quick to move out of the field of view. The signals are probably too dim for other radio telescopes in the world and FAST is currently under calibration.

Each of the possible explanations has their own problems. For example, Type II solar flares occur at much lower frequencies and the dispersion suggests a much farther source or a dense electron field (e.g. the stellar atmosphere?). Also, there are no many nearby objects in the field of view of Ross 128 and we have never seen satellites emit bursts like that, which were common in our other star observations. In case you are wondering, the recurrent aliens hypothesis is at the bottom of many other better explanations.

BREAKING NOW!! Scientists: Earth-like planet discovered NEARBY, orbiting RED DWARF star!! Coming towards our solar system now! 11 LY away!

A planet the same size as Earth and with a similar temperature has been discovered.

Ross 128b was found orbiting a red dwarf 11 light years away from our own planet and is moving closer to us.

Scientists say its surface temperature may be ‘the closest known comfortable abode for possible life’.

Astronomers working with the European Southern Observatory’s High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) at the La Silla Observatory in Chile found that the red dwarf star Ross 128 is orbited by a low-mass ‘exoplanet’ every 9.9 days.

The Earth-sized world is expected to be temperate, with a surface temperature that may also be close to that of the Earth. Ross 128 is the ‘quietest’ nearby star to host such a temperate exoplanet.

Isn't there some way we can convince ALL the Liberals to hitch a ride on that planet?

I nominate Justin Trudeau and his whole cabinet; also all the welfare bums.
