Using Gravity to Find Planets in the Habitable Zone - Universe Today
Astronomers have several techniques to discover planets. But one of the least used so far, gravitational microlensing, might be just the right technique to find planets in the habitable zone of nearby dwarf stars. The first way astronomers find planets is with the radial velocity technique. This is where the gravity of a heavy planet … Continue reading "Using Gravity to Find Planets in the Habitable Zone"
