Scientists have discovered a rare planetary system

897 light years away from Earth, scientists have discovered a rare planetary system. This planetarium with three stars and two planets is rare because the stars and houses rotate in the opposite direction.

Simon Elbrecht, a scientist at Aarhus University, said that this planetarium is named ‘K2-290’ and both its planets revolve around the main star ‘K2-290A’. Usually stars and planets move in the same direction in any planetary system.

Even in our solar system, the sun and all the houses rotate in the same direction. According to scientists, when compared to the orbits of the two planets ‘K2-290A’, its axis was found to be inclined about 124 degrees. It is clear that the star rotates in the opposite direction of its two planets.

However, this type of contrast has been found in many systems before and it has been explained with the help of different theories. But according to Elbrecht, the second number star K2-290B is the cause of misalignment between planets and stars in this planetary system. Which tilts the star more than its gravity and forces it to move in the opposite direction.
