Strangest Ever Solar System Discovered

The team of astronomers is one of the members are Dr Gavin Ramsay from Armagh Observatory have found evidence of the solar system or planetary system is the most bizarre. In the solar system, the two giant planets around multiple stars named UZ For which consists of red dwarfs and white dwarfs.

The results of the observation team of astronomers was published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society entitled "Possible detection of two giant extrasolar planets Orbiting the eclipsing polar UZ Fornacis". If you later proven true, then the solar system it would be a new solar system's most bizarre.

In a double star system, two pairs of stars that will be circling each other. Red dwarfs and white dwarfs on the system UZ For is also experiencing similar things, with a time of revolution, only a few hours. Because one star will pass through the face of another star, and vice versa, then some of the eclipse will occur.

Just as the eclipse of the Sun and the Moon, eclipses that occurred in these planetary systems could have predicted. However, in the observations, the astronomers found that sometimes eclipses occur too early or too late. Finally, the astronomers argue, there are two planets orbiting a double star, made the eclipse as early or late.

Based on the calculations, the two planets orbiting a double star has a mass of at least each 6 and 8 times Jupiter. Meanwhile, the time required by the planet to make one revolution each 5 and 16 years. Planetary system is too distant to be directly imaged.

Double star system makes the planet in the system is uninhabitable. White dwarfs are constantly stealing the material from the surface of the red dwarf star so that the material seemed to flow like a river in the sky. The material was then heated to millions of Kelvin, flooding the planetary system with X-rays that kill.

With that fact, so no need to expect the existence of the planet that has life in the system. Observations of double stars and two planets around it was made possible by the Southern African Large Telescop (SALT) and the data for 27-year observations from several observatories.
