'Improbable Planet' Somehow Survives Being Swallowed by Pulsing Star

  'Improbable Planet' Somehow Survives Being Swallowed by Pulsing Star Scientists have discovered a "survivalist" planet that shouldn't exist orbiting a pulsating star. Using astroseismology data from NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, or TESS, a team of researchers studying the red giant stars HD 212771 and HD 203949 detected oscillations, which are "gentle pulsations at the surfaces of stars," lead author Tiago Campante of the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) and Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto, told Space.com. This is actually the first time that oscillations have been found by TESS in stars that host exoplanets.

Gerwyn Price successfully defended his Grand Slam of Darts title with an emphatic 16-6 win over Peter Wright in the 2019 final.

The Welshman produced a scintillating display against Snakebite, ending the game with an average of 107.86, the second highest ever average recorded in a final of the competition.

He scooped £125,000 as a result of winning the event at Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton, a sum that sees him move up to a best ever position of third in the world rankings.

It represents what was a stunning title defence for the former rugby player who was booed by fans during his controversial win against Gary Anderson in the final of the same tournament last year.

He was later subjected to vile abuse on social media but did have the fine significantly reduced after appealing the decision.

However, after being on the receiving end of such a hostile reception at several events since that triumph, Price won the hearts of the crowd this time around, with fans regularly chanting his name as he won the tournament for the second year running.

Speaking after his sensational win over Wright, the ex-Cross Keys, Neath and Glasgow Warriors rugby player said: "I knew in the middle of that game that I was playing really well.

Astronomers spot steamy new exoplanet .
Astronomers from around the world just confirmed the existence of an entirely new planet. It was first spotted by NASA's TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) and then confirmed after additional investigation. The new gas giant, now known as TOI-677 b, is thought to be around 23 percent more massive than Jupiter, and it completes an orbit of its star every 11.23 days. That makes it a “warm Jupiter,” rather than a “hot Jupiter,” which is the name given to gas giants that complete an orbit within 10 days.
