Posted by in category: space

An astronomical discovery was made in New Mexico after an observatory called the Very Large Array picked up radio waves from a neighboring star system.

Scientists near Magdalena were looking for protective magnetic fields similar to Earth’s. The planet, titled YZ Ceti B, might be the first planet outside the solar system discovered with those properties, located just 12 light years away from Earth.
