NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope discovers gas planet in the far reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy

 

Written by Whitney Clavin
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has teamed up with a telescope on the ground to find a remote gas planet about 13,000 light-years away, making it one of the most distant planets known.

The discovery demonstrates that Spitzer — from its unique perch in space — can be used to help solve the puzzle of how planets are distributed throughout our flat, spiral-shaped Milky Way galaxy. Are they concentrated heavily in its central hub, or more evenly spread throughout its suburbs?

Billy Burns Continues Hot Start in Sounds Loss

Nashville SoundsOklahoma City, OK – For the third consecutive night, only one run separated the Nashville Sounds and Oklahoma City Dodgers at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. It was the Dodgers (6-2) who had the upper-hand on this night as they won 3-2.

After Kyle Jensen tacked on a seemingly innocuous solo home run to give the home team a 3-0 lead heading to the ninth, it appeared the Sounds were out for the count.
