A strange planet could provide vital clues for the nature of our own home planet. New research suggests that the very act of orbiting a star could be a crucial step in the evolution of planets. The planet is one of three planet-like objects discovered orbiting the star 2MASS J14062427. If observed using telescopes around the planet, they will help scientists better understand how planets form, and are the first planets that likely formed more than ten times away from their star. The new findings will be published in the August 23, 2016, issue of the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. It’s a very unusual planet, and one that’s actually very common. For over eight years, scientists have been working to identify planets that are similar to our solar system as we have discovered several similar worlds around other stars. At the time, this was very difficult, as there were already so many objects already that they were hard to separate when looking at the large scale. However, it’s getting better today.

“Planet 1” (2MASS) in the form of a star, known as 2MASS 42873399, orbits in a highly irregular orbit, passing between the star three times a day. The star is in the constellation of Centaurus, while the planet is in the northern constellation of Aquila. The star is actually very close to the planet, and it’s thought that the distance is less than 400 astronomical units (AU). Image from NASA, ESA and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

No further research should be undertaken unless there are good reasons to believe the findings. The new star is known to be a hot red disc, which is common for all red giants. Since the star is so close to the planet and its mass is close to that of our sun, the planet is likely to be pretty hot. This means that the planet is likely to be an exoplanet with a surface temperature of more than 250,000 Kelvin (430,000 degrees Centigrade). If an exoplanet with mass of greater than 500 times that of the sun has this extreme surface temperature, it indicates to our solar system that the planet has a huge interior. While some speculate that the sun and the planet both have a similar core, the evidence is not strong enough to support this theory.

It’s not quite as hot as that, but also not that far away. Also, when we get to worlds similar to our Earth, we will probably find evidence for the planet’s core. Then, we’ll make a better prediction; but for now, we know our Earth is very old. 3:01 PM, January 30, 2016

Although the new research does not disprove that the planet is a hot sun-like binary, such a planet should be very hot as a planet of that type would easily be, based on the infrared spectrum of the planet. The planet is between one and five times the mass of Jupiter. Image from NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

Plus, it's pretty clear that naltrexone is not going to be a cure for depression, because the amount of improvement is relatively small compared to the risks associated with taking antidepressant medications at high doses.
