Two new Jupiter-sized extrasolar planets found, each orbiting one star of a binary-star system

European astronomers have found two new Jupiter-sized extra-solar planets, each orbiting one star of a binary-star system.

Astronomers Spot Two New Jupiter-Sized Planets Orbiting Twin Stars - Many stars are part of binary systems, which are twin stars that form out of the same gas cloud. Yet these two-star systems often don't have planets. Now, for the first time, two stars of a binary system are both found to host a "hot Jupiter" exoplanet.

This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousand of young stars developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion.

Three nearly Earth-size planets found orbiting nearby star

2M1207b: The first exoplanet directly imaged and the first discovered orbiting a brown dwarf. It is a Jupiter-like planet, 5 times more massive than Jupiter. It orbits the brown dwarf at a distance 55 times larger than the Earth to the Sun, nearly twice as far as Neptune is from the Sun. #astronomy #ESO #VLT
