Astronomers using NSF's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array have detected a "rogue" planetary-mass object with a surprisingly powerful magnetic field. This first of its kind object is around 20 light years away from Earth. The team's analysis showed the planet's magnetic field is around 200 times stronger than Jupiter's, and this could help explain why it also has a strong aurora.
It's believed that the magnetic dynamo mechanisms of this particular space object will help scientists discover more planets beyond our solar system using auroral radio emissions.
The auroras on our planet are caused by its magnetic field interacting with the solar wind (the continuous flow of charged particles from the sun's upper atmosphere, known as the corona, that permeates the solar system).
Brown dwarfs, objects that are two massive be considered planets but not massive enough to sustain nuclear fusion in their cores, were first predicted in the 1960s and detected for the first time in 1995.
A rogue planet more than 12 times the size of Jupiter (artist's impression pictured) has been spotted hurling through space.
Red Sox Take Charge of AL East, Expose Yankees in Sweep
It happened in the bottom of the first inning after NY starter Luis Severino knocked down AL MVP candidate Mookie Betts. Andrew Benintendi then secured the Red Sox victory with a walk-off, two-out single an inning later.
Scientists have discovered a planet that travels outside our solar system, but it seems that it doesn't orbit a star. But it's possible an orbiting planet or moon could trigger similar interactions like the ones seen between Jupiter and its moon Io.
The newly identified object is classified as a brown dwarf due to its mass. The temperature on that planet is about 825 degrees Celsius, which makes it a lot cooler than out Sun.
In fact, Kao's team says the exoplanet even has auroras, which give off radio emissions that the VLA has managed to pick up. One rule of thumb in drawing the distinction is the mass below which fusion of deuterium is not possible - about 13 Jupiter masses.
The exact difference between a large gas planet and a brown dwarf is a bone of contention for scientists, with debate raging over what defines one or the other. The rogue body is almost large enough to be considered a gas giant planet and it offers researchers the opportunity to study these massive objects, shedding light on their magnetic realities.
That's a negligible amount for China, which imported 17 million tons total previous year , according to the US Census Bureau. Trump has threatened tariffs on over $500 billion in Chinese goods, covering virtually all US imports from China .
As of early Monday, the petition had garnered almost 20,000 signatures and its goal was to get to 25,000 signatures. Smith was part of Meyer's staff at Florida from 2005-09 and at Ohio State from 2012-17.
And once they're all caught up on challenges , they can turn their attention to finding this week's hidden battle star . You obtain this at level 27 in the Battle Pass and it will cause your character to swing his pickaxe like a golf club.
As for mobile hotspot use, that's also included, though not at the same sort of speeds as T-Mobile ONE customers might experience. Having more options is always a good thing, and that's what T-Mobile Essentials gives T-Mo customers.
That reverses a change announced last week that would have cut access to blockbusters within the first two weeks of release. After announcing a price hike just a week ago MoviePass today announced that they will keep their price at $9.95 a month.
The twin-engine Cessna plane was bound for John Wayne Airport when it crashed a mile (1.6km) away on Sunday. The incident took place around 12:30 pm local time , when malls and stores typically bustle with customers.
The Post says the new information puts Butina in closer contact with the Trump campaign than was previously known. Paul Erickson , a former adviser for the Trump transition team, connected the two via email.
He also told reporters that he could "potentially" withdraw from the tournament rather than take on De Minaur. By the time you're done with all your recovery and stuff, it's going to be 5:30, 6 o'clock in the morning.
The teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns , but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning. Everybody wants to see, so I'm just working each and every day, putting my head down, just going after it, man".
These new tariffs would affect about 38% of all American exports to China, which are worth about $170 billion in total. The ministry said timing of the implementation of the new tariffs on USA goods would depend on the actions of the US.
