Three recently discovered planets orbit dangerously close to their stars, whose life cycle is nearing an end.

Among the thousands of exoplanets found so far, these three gas giant planets have been discovered space telescope NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite has one of the shortest orbital periods around it giant stars or giants.

To give you an idea, one of the planets, TOI-2337b, will be devoured by its host star in less than a million years, which is Shorter than any other planet currently known.

“These findings are important for understanding a new frontier in exoplanet studies: how planetary systems evolve over time,” explained lead author Samuel Grunblatt, a postdoctoral researcher at the American Museum of Natural History and the Flatiron Institute in New York.

“These observations offer new windows in [analisar] Planets are nearing the end of their lives, before they are Swallowed up by your stars hosts”.
Grunblatt announced at a press conference of the American Astronomical Society the discovery and confirmation of these planets – TOI-2337b, TOI-4329b and TOI-2669b. The study has been accepted for publication in the Astronomical Journal and is available at outlet arXiv.org.

A new planet larger than Earth has been discovered outside the solar system
The researchers estimate that the masses of the planets are between 0.5 and 1.7 times that of Jupiter and their sizes range from slightly smaller to more than 1.6 times that of Jupiter. Jupiter’s size. These orbs also have a wide range of densities, from similar to styrofoam to three times the density of water, implying a variety of origins. It is believed that these three exoplanets are only the tip of the iceberg, he is writing EurekAlert portal!

“We hope to find dozens to hundreds of these advanced transiting planetary systems using TESS, which will provide us with new details about how planets interact with each other, amplify and migrate around stars, including those similar to our Sun,” Nick noted. Saunders, co-author of the study and a graduate student at the University of Hawaii’s Institute of Astronomy.
