Washington D.C. [USA], April 10 (ANI): For the first time, scientists have directly measured wind speed on a brown dwarf, an object larger than Jupiter (the largest planet in our solar system) but not quite massive enough to become a star. To achieve the finding, they used a new method that
Washington D.C. [USA], April 9 (ANI): After peering into the scalding atmosphere of the ultra-hot Jupiter planet, researchers have reported the findings in a new study. In the study led by Jake Turner of Cornell University, a team of scientists digs deep into the transmission spectrum for th
