Found, the irradiated 4 Unique Planet Sun

Found, the irradiated 4 Unique Planet Sun: Real version of Tatooine, the planet with two suns in the movie "Star Wars", was found. Even more remarkable, the alien planet is illuminated four Sun once. This is the first finding of its kind.

Gas giant slightly larger than Neptune and the equivalent of six times the size of Earth orbiting the star pair. And into orbit two other stars.

He was on the scene within about 5,000 light years from Earth. Named PH1, inspired sites that facilitate discovery.

It took 138 days for PH1 two orbits its parent star that has a mass of about 1.5 and 0.41 times that of the Sun. Fellow star's orbit each other once every 20 days.

The researchers estimated the minimum temperature ranged PH1 251 degrees Celsius and a maximum of 340 degrees C. Too hot to be declared as the habitable zone.

Are two amateur astronomers, Jek Kian from San Francisco and Robert Gagliano from Cottonwood, Arizona who find it among the jungle of data on the site The findings were then confirmed the United States and British scientists with direct observations at the Keck Observatory.

"Four stars on a planet creates a complex environment. However seems to be in a stable orbit," said Dr Chris Lintott of the University of Oxford, told the BBC.

"It's very confusing. Justu But that's what makes it a very pleasant discovery. Far from what we expected."

Planet orbiting two stars are called binary stars, binary star system with a planet that is not unusual. Only a handful of exoplanets found orbiting two stars. However, in addition to PH1, never found any planets into orbits of two other stars.

So the question arises, how can it be in a stable orbit when he influenced the gravity of the four stars?

Moreover, Dr Lintott said, there are also six other planets are in orbit established between a double star. And they are very close to these stars.

"This tells us that planets may form in the protoplanetary disks," he said. "The planets are close together and can survive in a stable orbit."

Founded in 2010, aims to involve more people in the analysis of data collected Kepler telescope U.S. space agency (NASA).

Kepler was launched in March 2009 to search for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. Planet Hunters site visitors have access to the data that were randomly selected from one of the stars of the targeted Keppler. Since December 2010, more than 170,000 people have participated in the project.
