Astronomers detect possible radio emission from exoplanet

By monitoring the cosmos with a radio telescope array, an international team of scientists has detected radio bursts emanating from the constellation Boötes -- that could be the first radio emission collected from a planet beyond our solar system.

The team, led by Cornell postdoctoral researcher Jake D. Turner, Philippe Zarka of the Observatoire de Paris -- Paris Sciences et Lettres University and Jean-Mathias Griessmeier of the Université d'Orléans will publish their findings in the forthcoming research section of Astronomy & Astrophysics, on Dec. 16.

"We present one of the first hints of detecting an exoplanet in the radio realm," Turner said. "The signal is from the Tau Boötes system, which contains a binary star and an exoplanet. We make the case for an emission by the planet itself. From the strength and polarization of the radio signal and the planet's magnetic field, it is compatible with theoretical predictions."

Among the co-authors is Turner's postdoctoral advisor Ray Jayawardhana, the Harold Tanner Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and a professor of astronomy.

"If confirmed through follow-up observations," Jayawardhana said, "this radio detection opens up a new window on exoplanets, giving us a novel way to examine alien worlds that are tens of light-years away."

Fascinating

Was the tranmissions "Breaker, Breaker 19"?

10-4

Must be the cb planet.

"Now ahead of your children
And ahead of your wife
On the list of the ten best things in life
Your cb's gotta rate right around number four
Course, beavers, hot biscuits, and Merle Haggard
Come one, two, three, you know

Well, I's loaded down coming outta Lake City
I was checking out seat covers young and pretty
When all of a sudden, there come a call
Over my cb, ringing wall to wall

Said go to double nickels
As you hit the ridge
Cause there's a Smokie picture taker
Just aside of the bridge."

As I understand it, this was the message.

re: Astronomers detect possible radio emission from exoplanet
I have no idea what Trumansfangs was even talking about or what he was quoting...and I’m generally a person interested in cool science shit, but at this point, this year, I couldn’t give two fricks about shite like this. My usually inquisitive mind, is shot, if it doesn’t involve some thing I can use to survive the current bullshite, I’m numb to it.
I’m pretty sure I’m looking at a medical lock down that may end my job, or at,least cut my pay in half like it was in the spring.

And this is NOT a shot at the OP at all. But a fricking emission from an Exoplanet is about as far down my list of concerns as possible.

Sorry I’m venting.

Were you raped by a radio transmission as a child

re: Astronomers detect possible radio emission from exoplanet
While it’s thought that the magnetic field of a Jupiter sized planet is the source of the signal in the article, another mysterious signal from much closer to home doesn’t seem so obvious.

The mysteries are cropping up at a faster rate as more and more technology is focused upon the Universe outside our solar system. It seems just a matter of time before contact will be made with our neighbors.

The radio is on a loop. AC/DC gets good every Friday night at 10:30 pm central.
