Near the sun, astronomers have found between 70 and 170 displaced planets that are comparable in size to Jupiter.
This was reported by a spokesman for the European Southern Laboratory ESO, citing the scientific journal Nature Astronomy.
It is noteworthy that displaced planets are space bodies that can be compared to Jupiter in terms of their size and are located far from a star system.
Scientists have found in the interstellar region not far from Earth a few dozen cold and not bright space bodies, the origin of which is not yet clear.
Some believe that displaced planets are planets that have been hurled out of star systems by various gravitational interactions. Others believe that they are small brown dwarfs, as failed stars.
Near the solar system, astronomer Herve Bowie of Purdue University and his colleagues have discovered a not so small number of displaced planets, between 70 and 170 planets.
This discovery was made as a result of observing the so-called “cradle of stars” as a gas cloud located on the border between the constellations of Scorpio and Snake and away from the sun at a distance of 390 light years.
After analyzing thousands of space images in the cradle of stars, scientists discovered more than 70 clear space objects in the infrared frequencies that changed their positions over the past decades, but are still almost invisible against the background of nebulae and major stars.
The share of displaced planets within the gas cloud is 4.5%. Scientists hope to be able to understand why so many stray planets form in the interstellar region.
