According to foreign media, Scientists have discovered a giant object suspended at the edge of the solar system. This celestial body may help reveal how planets formed and solve a decades-old mystery about where they hide.
Scientists have long believed that objects of this size (from one kilometer to several kilometers) are suspended there, but they have never been found before, the Independent reported on its website on January 29. Now, astronomers at the National Observatory of Japan have succeeded in discovering such an object using a method called occultation observation. This means that when something passes in front of the celestial body, it causes its light to drop, so that people can observe the celestial body.
reports that this is the first time that scientists have discovered one of these objects, although they have been predicted for more than 70 years.
reports that the object was discovered in the "Kepper Belt", a group of small objects floating outside Neptune. One of the most famous is Pluto, but there are many celestial bodies there. They are considered to be remnants of the early solar system. Because they are so far away from Earth and mostly free from radiation and larger planets, they are still largely the same, which may allow scientists to find ways to trace the solar system before planetary formation. The discovery suggests that the number of these objects may be larger than previously thought, according to the
report. The discovery also suggests that eventually planetary objects will first form kilometer-sized clusters and then join together to create the universe that surrounds people today. (Compiler/Chen Zean)
