Described as a "missing link," scientists have discovered an object in the deep cosmos that they believe can hold secrets to the formation of the planets.
Known as the Kuiper Belt Object (KBO), a 0.8-mile wide cosmic stone is found in the Kuiper Belt, a region of icy bodies far past Neptune. Considering its size ̵
1; considerably smaller than Pluto or Ultima Thule – these types of celestial bodies can be far more common than previously thought, and provide clues to planetary evolution. "If this is a true CBC detection, it means that planetsimale before the Slave Growth Phase has grown into kilometer-sized objects in the original external solar system and remains as a major population in today's buckwheat belt," the researchers wrote in the study. The results can be found in a study in the scientific journal
The planetary net may not exist, but a lot of the mystical object of the solar system for the study may have up to 60,000 of these average CBC size for each square At the survey's summary, it is added that "these mileage CBOs are extremely weak and impossible to detect directly," and by "star-star events" they can be found in this way. 19659005] Ko Arimatsu ruled the study, said they did not have much money and searched for the aforementioned events, events that cause eclipse in the sky, which may mean that CCOs pass in front of the stars to help find the object. a real victory for small projects, "Arimacu said in a statement. "Our team had less than 0.3 percent of the budget of major international projects, and we did not even have enough money to build a second dome to protect our second telescope!" Still, we were able to make a discovery that is impossible
A cloud that can contain trillions of ice objects, according to Space.com
