New Planets
Planet at Type B Star
01/18/10

 

In this artist's conception, a hypothetical alien world and its moon orbit a hot, massive, type B star. Due to the short lifetime of such a star, complex life is unlikely to be found there. Although not good targets in the hunt for extraterrestrials, such planetary systems help give us a better understanding of planet formation.
