Default Hubble Finds A Star Eating A Planet.

I found this to be interesting and thought I would share it.

NASA - Hubble Finds a Star Eating a Planet


If it's anything like the artist's concept, I don't see how this planet could possibly have 10 million years left. But hey, I'm no astronomer.

Also, I don't know if anyone can find real images, but if you can, please post.

Yummy!

I wouldn't be surprised if this was fairly common. A lot of the "solar systems" that they've found have had Jovians in very close orbits to the parent star. It's probably one the last gasps of the accretion process. Just a guess. I watch too much Discovery Channel, the pinnacle of scientific accuracy. (Although "How The Universe Works," narrated by Mike Rowe, is killer nifty, and on my must buy list as soon as it comes out. Awesome CGI, very good presentation.)

O_o that's a great video, madman. Thanks for posting.

My brother loves that show. He records them with the DV-R and we see them later. Very fascinating stuff. I saw the show about alien worlds yesterday. It talked about the other solar systems they have found and did discuss the gas giant that went kamikaze into its star. Very cool!

Interesting.

I wonder what method we use to find smaller exoplanets. Although the article didn't specify the radius of Wasp-12b, but I don't think Earth-sized plants can be found using the COS.

I believe they use some type of technology that can see the bend of the magnetic field of these stars. Apparently the only thing that could cause this is a planet in close orbit.

Wow, that video, madman.... It had me looking up those types of videos for at least an hour
Space always makes me contemplate it's massiveness and, in comparison, our insignificance

How about galaxies eating each other, now that's cannibilism on an epic scale!







(Yes this is one of my own, just thought I'd sneak it in! )

Yes, in fact, Mars will eat Phobos in 100 million years or so.

It will split the tiny moon into a ring and slowly drag the ring down to the surface.

And the opposite is true for our own Moon.

AWESOME! Just like nature here on earth. Something always can eat something else.

Isn't our moon slowly leaving Earth's orbit? That's what you mean right?
