Latest Fomalhaut Stories
Researchers have found that neighboring Fomalhaut is a triple, not double, star system.
A new NASA study introduces a cautionary note in the interpretation of rings and spiral arms as signposts for new planets. The team discovered interactions between gas and dust may cause a debris disk, under the right circumstances, to produce narrow rings on its own without a planet present.
A team of U.S. astronomers has discovered what looks to be a large asteroid belt orbiting around Vega, the second-brightest star in the northern sky, NASA officials announced on Tuesday.
According to newly released images from the Hubble Space Telescope, a vast debris belt circling around a nearby star is wider than scientists believe, and the unusual orbit of a planet traveling around that star could be to blame.
In a new study, researchers have taken another look at Hubble images from 2004 and 2006, and are now reaffirming that Fomalhaut b is indeed a “massive planet”. The study's lead author Dr. Thayne Currie recently talked with redOrbit about bringing Fomalhaut b back from the dead.
A new study suggests that the nearby star Fomalhaut hosts a massive "zombie" exoplanet that was previously thought to not exist, but is back from the dead.
Astronomers have made a breakthrough discovery in understanding a nearby planetary system, giving clues about how these systems form and evolve.
The ESA’s Herschel Space Observatory has been studying the dust near the star Fomalhaut and has found the surrounding dust appears to have come from the dust of destroyed comets.
