Pine's team discovered a planet an estimated 39 billion kilometers (24 million miles) from infant starHD 163296, while the other team, led by University of MI astronomer Richard Teague, located two planets roughly 12 billion and 21 billion kilometres (7.4 billion and 13 billion miles) from the star. The astronomers studied the uncommon patterns in the flow of gas within a planet that forms disc around a young star. Some we can not see at all- we just understand they exist through to indirect evidence. HD 163296 is about four million years old and is 330 light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius.
"When a planet forms in a protoplanetary disk it can carve a gap and produce wakes in the disk". One team, led by University of MI scientist Richard Teague discovered a pair of Jupiter-sized exoplanets 7.4 billion miles (12 billion km) and 13 billion miles (21 million km) from the star.
Testing its new method, the team confirmed the previously predicted existence of two Jupiter-mass planets around HD 163296. "Though rather than looking at the changes in wavelength from the wobble of the star, we're diving deep into the disk to see how the fine-scale changes are happening".
"This probably means we are just at the beginning of such discoveries with ALMA", Christophe Pinte, lead author of the second paper and professor in Monash University's school of physics and astronomy, said in an email.
Two teams of researchers have independently discovered a trio of young planets orbiting a newborn star close to the solar system.
Scientists have been studying a distant exoplanet that is very young.
The team led by Teague identified two distinctive planet-like patterns in the disk, one at approximately 80 astronomical units (AU) from the star and the other at 140 AU.
A Trump Salute Shows Up in North Korea Video During the interview, the subject of Trump's recent Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un arose. It has long sought a meeting with a U.S. president, something it felt would give legitimacy to the leadership.
Subtle changes in the wavelength of that light as it travelled through the gas allowed the scientists to figure out what was orbiting the star. Researchers are hoping this technique, applied to other disks, will reveal more planets information and help us understand how gravity molds primordial clouds into planetary systems, including our own.
Pinte's team identified the outermost planet in the HD 163296 system.
The images captured by ALMA of HD 163296 show concentric rings and gaps around the star, which scientists believe are the protoplanetary disks. It has one major drawback, though: planetary transits are observable only when the planet's orbit happens to be perfectly aligned with the astronomers' line of sight. "It is therefore crucial to study kinematics of the gas".

The World Cup will go from a 32-team tournament to 48, however the victor will play the same amount of games (7) as they do now. The 2026 tournament will look very different than it due to its expansion.

Trump's announcement is an escalation of a long-simmering trade battle between the two countries. The U.S. trade actions against China could lead to retaliation from Beijing.
Melting of Antarctica is accelerating at an alarming rate
Prior to 2012, Antarctica lost 67 billion tonnes (74 billion tons) per year, contributing to a 0.2-millimeter rise in sea levels. In the new Nature report, a team of researchers has reviewed 24 different studies on the melting trends in Antarctic ice sheets.

Livescore: Result of Egypt vs Uruguay
Jimenez rose higher than the Egyptian defence to head in Carlos Sanchez's freekick from the right into the net from seven yards. With Egypt missing the goal threat of Mo Salah, Uruguay were always likely to have the better chances to break the deadlock.
