Are there any special features in the formation of planets in binary systems
At a scientific forum in the United States, scientists from Rice University presented a photo to everyone, which seems to record the process of the birth of a planet in a Binary star system.
The report on this topic was made by Associate Professor of Physics and astronomy Andrea Isella, his report included the binary system HD 142527. To study this object, the ALMA high-altitude ground-based observatory in the Chilean desert was used.
This binary system has been monitored for several years. Enough material has accumulated to understand how the formation of planets in such systems occurs. Thanks to the ALMA telescope in Chile, the image quality has become much better. In the future, scientists intend to more clearly analyze how the planets grow in such systems.
The binary system HD 142527 is located not so far away by cosmic standards, only some 450 light-years from our home. The observation is conducted in the direction of the constellation of the Wolf.
Scientists have photographed some denser structure in a cloud of dust and gas in the orbit of a Binary system, it is nothing else, it is the embryo of a future planet.
At such a great distance, thanks to a powerful telescope, scientists were able to see everything to the smallest detail and now everything is laid out on the shelves, and that is why such a capacious report on the topic "The origin of planets in a Binary system!»
Until recently, there was an opinion in the scientific community that it is not so easy to create a planet in a binary system,and some even believe that this is not real at all. It is difficult at least to find some stable point where it would be possible to be stable relative to both stars. Everything happens as it turns out, and even something that happens very rarely.
In the HD 142527 system, as it turns out, the matter on the pacific ocean is stored, and the time is not far off when a small planet is born in this quiet enclave of two stars.
