Way to go Canada! A team led by Université de Montréal researchers has discovered and photographed a new planet 155 light years away.
The planet, named GU Psc b, is so far from the parent star (GU Psc)it takes 80,000 years to make the trip! The parent star is about three times LESS massive than our own Sun. So this planet is still gravitationally bound enough to orbit 2,000 (Earth/Sun) AU from a star a third (?) the mass of our Sun? That’s amazing, I gotta do the math on this.
