You may want to get used to the name Ross 128 b. The newly discovered exoplanet is the second-closest found to our solar system, only 11 light-years away. And it could support life.
Announcements about exoplanets, those found outside our solar system, seem almost commonplace in this golden age of discovery for astronomers. So why is Ross 128 b unique — apart from its rather human-sounding name?
The planet is about the same size as Earth, and it may have a similar surface temperature, making it a temperate world that could support life.
Astronomers found Ross 128 and its planet using the European Southern Observatory’s planet-hunting instrument, called HARPS. The High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher is based at La Silla Observatory in Chile
WAS IT ALIENS? Shock as US Air Force scrambled to mystery UFO in skies near Area 51
An unknown aircraft was spotted flying through well-monitored air space above Oregon state.
Witnesses were left questioning where the jet may have come from and what it was doing.
Military officials have been unable to identify the plane’s origin or even destination, after it vanished and they were not able top trace it, Dailystar.co.uk reports.
Oregon borders Nevada, which is home to the mysterious and top-secret Area 51 US Air Force base where tests are conducted on experimental craft.
Conspiracy theorists believe Area 51 holds the remains of crashed UFOs and even dead aliens.
Air force F-15C interceptor fighters were launched in response to the sightings, according to local news reports.
North American Aerospace Defence Command confirmed it had been asked by the Federal Aviation Administration to help track the unidentified aircraft flying at heights regularly used by commercial aircraft – 35,000 and 40,000ft – on October 25.
Fighter jets were scrambled from Portland to investigate, but failed to find anything.
No flight plan had been submitted for the unidentified craft and no identification transponder was active.
The craft was not transmitting collision avoidance signals.
Air traffic control stations were reportedly having difficulty following the craft on radar.
