Astronomers have found the real planet Vulcan from the cinematic "Star Trek"


Astronomers of the University of Florida report on the discovery of a real exoplanet, which in its characteristics is very similar to the planet Vulcan, which appeared in the movie street "Star Trek". The exoplanet was detected using the Dharma Endowment Foundation Telescope (DEFT) telescope. The object is a super-earth and is about 16 light-years from us.

In a press release published on the website of the University of Florida, it is reported that the exopolant revolves around the sunlike star HD 26965, also called 40 Eridian A. Interestingly, in the car-tuned Star Trek, the birthplace of one of Spock's main characters, Vulcan is the second planet of the 40 Eridian system A.

"The volcano is the native planet of Spock's research associate in the original version of" Star Trek. Spock served on the Starship Enterprise, whose mission was to find new worlds. The same mission is with our project, "says Gregory Henry, co-author of the Dharma Planet Survey.

The source reports that the size of the open object is about twice the size of the Earth. The complete revolution around its star exoplanet performs for 42 days. In this case, the detected Vulcan is at the most optimal point of the so-called habitation zone.

The researchers found that the star HD 26965 is only slightly colder and smaller than our Sun. In this case they are of the same age and have practically identical cycles of magnetic activity. According to the scientists, despite the high temperature on the surface, the detected exoplanet may be suitable for life.
