How will the end of the world be? Scientists can predict; paying off!

You are Astronomy scientists identified, for the first time, by A exoplanet Which performs a spiraling motion and tends to age, which can cause catastrophic collision.

The same astronomers believe the ring could be a glimpse of what the future will be like. the end of the world Someday. Read on and learn more about it.

How do planets die?

Through a new study published last Monday (12/19), a team of Scientists The Americans said that they expect an exoplanet Kepler 1658 ba doomed fate, can finally explain how planets die according to planetary aging stars🇧🇷

It is known that this planet is 2600 light years from Earth and has the code name “Hot Jupiter”.

According to the study published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Lettersthe orbit performed by the exoplanet Kepler-1658b around its main star takes less than 3 days and gets shorter every year.

It is estimated that with each passing year, the orbit of the doomed planet gets shorter by about 131 milliseconds.

Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow Shreyas Visapragada stated:

“If it continues to rotate toward its star at the observed rate, the planet will collide with its star in less than three million years.”

In addition, he also reported the following:

“This is the first time we have observed direct evidence of a planet spiraling toward its developing star.”

Will Earth meet the same end as Kepler-1658b?

About this, the Center for Astrophysics left a statement:

“Death by star is a fate awaiting many worlds and could be Earth’s final farewell billions of years from now as our sun ages.”

With that said, Visaragada states that in five billion years, it will be Sun You will undergo evolution and become a great red star. He added that the fate of our planet remains uncertain.
