The mystery of the moon twice as large as Earth- Corriere.it

Kepler-1708b was discovered at a distance of 5,500 light-years between the constellations Cygnus and Lyra.

After orbiting extraterrestrial stars in other galaxies, astronomers have been able to gather clues as to where they are now. The first and the moons are in the vicinity of those distant celestial bodies. Protagonist David Kipping is currently with a team of astronomers from Columbia University in New York. They both wrote together Intriguing statement about
Natural astronomy
Kepler-1708b, about 5,500 light-years from Earth, is said to have discovered traces of a giant exoluna near the exoplanet.

More than double

Its size is particularly amazing Radius 2.6 times larger than Earth Almost ten times more than selenium. There is no such moon in the solar system. So Kepler-1708b opens a whole new world of imagining being baptized without any evidence. Kipping has been working on it for a decade, and four years ago he announced that he liked the signal of an exolona, ​​which has not been confirmed. Urging a new candidate to come now begs questions not only for its exceptional characteristics, but above all, for the formation of moons on planetary systems that are very different from what has been conducted so far.

Search for Exolunas

Kipping scanned seventy exoplanets far away from the Thai star. More than 150 million kilometers, In favorable conditions for difficult search. By measuring the dimming of the mother star’s light as the exoplanet moved forward, the scientist discovered an anomaly in brightness. All possible verifications led to the conclusion that it was precisely the existence of an Exoluna that created it. He added that otherwise we would not be able to explain. The hypothesized gas is peculiar in nature, its dimensions being able to identify it considering the weakness of the available instruments. The same thing happened with the discovery of the first exoplanets. If confirmed, the question of its origin opens up, he comments Mario Tamasso Exoplanet expert at the National Institute of Astronomy in Turin. In addition to the two traditional interpretations, this may be the result of a conflict between two bodies or the planetary process originated from the primordial element of birth, the third being advanced: this is also one. The planets, actually a super planet, were captured by the gravitational pull of an even larger nearby planet like Jupiter after the mother star. Maybe The The new super space telescope James Webb will find the answer.
