Images of tenth exoplanet



Can stars be forced out of our galaxy? Once they are, they simply go rogue and stay out there on their own since the space between galaxies is so enormous. However, new telescopes are possibly able to see these stars… and with existing telescopes we have imaged the tenth exoplanet at a considerable distance from its parent star. Its estimated size is between 10 and 40 Jupiter masses. Also, the Chromoscope is a great new way to observe the night sky in different wavelengths.Slide through the different wavelengths imaged by the Chromoscope at www.chromoscope.net.Listen:
