Vatican City: Vatican Observatory with critical studies to unravel the mysteries of space and creation. The research was jointly carried out by scientists from the Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam, Germany, and the Vatican Observatory.
The study focused on the parent stars of planets outside the solar system. In this way, the study of more than 1000 bright stars is in progress. Astronomers at the Vatican Observatory, Fr. Paul Gabor, S.J., Fr. David Brown, S.J., Fr. The studies are progressing under the supervision of Engineer Michael Franz, in addition to Chris Corbally, S.J.
The study was about the characteristics of the light emitted by the stars. Evaluating a star’s luminosity level reveals many physical properties, including its temperature, pressure, motion, and chemical composition. Researchers analyze the light using a technique called quantitative absorption spectroscopy. The Vatican telescope is used for this purpose. It took the telescope up to 1.5 hours to capture the light of a star. In this way, the light of the 1,100 stars that host the planets was captured.
Researchers hope to gain valuable insights into the complex relationship between stars and their planets.
NASA has discovered that there are more than 5000 planets in the outer space of the solar system. NASA launched the Transisting Exoplanet Survey Satellite in 2018 with the goal of finding planets orbiting stars located outside the solar system. Its aim is to find out whether there are planets other than Earth with favorable conditions for life.
Aliens are identified mainly in two ways. The first way is to detect fluctuations in the light coming from a star in the distant universe. This is a method of confirming the presence of planets by recognizing the change in light when the planets pass between the Earth and that star.
Astronomers at the Vatican say that determining the amount of various chemical elements within a star can give clues about how many planets (rocky worlds like Earth or Mars) the star has. We can calculate the age of those planets and get an indication of whether the star swallowed them.
The researchers are optimistic that further studies can be conducted from the findings of the research.
Founded in 1572, the Vatican Observatory is one of the oldest observatories in the world still in operation. Its headquarters are in the Pope’s summer residence at Castel Gandolfo.
