One of them is just 160 light years from Earth and includes three planets that are remarkably similar in size to our own.
According to the website of the Indian Space Research Organisation, scientists have said that the planet revolves around a sun-like star. The surface temperature of the planet was recorded around 600 degree Celsius due to its close proximity to the host star. The team found the planet to be smaller in size than Saturn and bigger than Neptune.
Ahmedabad, India, have identified a new exoplanet, a super-Neptune planet, situated at 600 million light-years far from the Earth. They integrated the spectrograph with a 1.2m telescope at PRL's Gurushikar Observatory in Mount Abu, to measure the mass of the planet, leading to the discovery. We've already messed up our planet pretty badly, and even if we don't push the Earth completely over the edge ourselves there's the simple fact that no planet lasts forever.
The gravitational pull caused by a planet on its host star makes it wobble around their common center of mass, which shifts the spectra and can be measured in terms of Radial Velocity using precise and stabilised High Resolution Spectrographs, like the PARAS. PRL scientists, who observed the target for about 1.5 years with the spectrograph, made calculations which suggested that heavy elements like ice, silicates and iron content make 60%-70% of the total mass. Hence the planet will be known as EPIC 211945201b or K2-236b. It was designed by the members of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Division of PRL. Very few such spectrographs exist around the world (mostly in the U.S. and in the Europe) that can do such precise measurements. "Extra" implies that these are outside our solar system.
Dr. Murthy said, "The work done by Dr. Chakraborty and his collaborators is important in characterising the nature of the exoplanet and they were able to show that the candidate is a close to Saturn-size planet orbiting near its star". The first exoplanet (51 Pegasi b) was discovered by Michael Mayor and Didier Queloz in 1995. But the newly discovered worlds are much closer, meaning that the temperature is probably too hot for life.
The surge in U.S. production has pulled down WTI into a discount versus Brent of more than $11 a barrel, its steepest since 2015. Surging U.S. production has capped gains in WTI prices, widening the grade's discount to Brent to more than $11 a barrel.
Two people were detained, Toledo said, adding several casings found at the scene indicated there were multiple shooters. Officers raced to the scene in Tiara Street, north Hollywood following a call at 12.58am local time.

Key in that regard was his backhand, which consistently flustered Thiem , who didn't have the same bag of tricks at his disposal. After Nadal held there for 5-4, Thiem basically handed over the next game - and the set - by making four mistakes in a row.
The best change in design is the removal of the thick bezels on top, instead the phone employs a thin black forehead. The phone focuses on productivity and multitasking, hence the company has provided 6GB of RAM to ease multitasking.
The young actor was found unresponsive at the facility in the San Fernando Valley and there were no immediate signs of foul play. No word yet on cause of death or what Odell had been doing in the sober living home.
Jones' dismissal was a significant loss to the USC defense, which retained a solid group of starters from the 2017 season. Ranked the 12th-ranked player in the 2016 class on Rivals.com , Jones is a native of Long Beach, California.
A tardy Donald Trump created a distraction this morning when he showed up late for a G7 meeting on women's empowerment. Copies that begin "We, the Leaders of the G7" were distributed in the press room stamped "Approved".
Quake hits parts of eastern England
Ten years ago a 5.2-magnitude quake in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire was felt widely across England and Wales. It was a far more dramatic picture than the one painted on social media.
Springboks bounce back to heap more misery on England
Unfortunately, we didn't go up with enough width. "We'll learn from this today, it was a great occasion but we don't like losing". We've got players coming off the back of the club season so to some degree we've been restricted in training.

Khan spins Afghanistan to T20 series win
With nine runs to defend, Rashid started off by forcing Mushfiqur to hole out to deep mid-wicket off the first ball. It was simple strategy but the Bangladeshi batsmen probably refuse to respect the Afghan spinners due to their ego.
