A giant, Jupiter-like planet is discovered by astronomers in a unique position in the orbit around a red dwarf star.

The researchers have published their work Thursday in the journal Science, the finding of a large planet close to a small star, it could force astronomers to think about it, how planets are created.

Red dwarfs are the most common type of star in the universe, and it is made up of more than 70 per cent of the people in the universe.

Scientists have reportedly been used in astronomical observatories in Spain and California, to the analysis of the red-dwarf star, GJ (3512, which is 31 light years from Earth and is about one-eighth of the sun’s mass.

“The statistics of extrasolar planets we found so far seem to indicate that low-mass stars, is usually the host of small planets such as the Earth or mini-Neptune,” said Morales Space.com. The most popular model of the planet’s formation, the core accretion model, which points in the direction of the trend. Here, however, we have evidence to the contrary — that is, we have to have a gas-giant planet orbiting very low-mass stars.”

The researchers will continue to monitor this system and to find out more about the second world, and, perhaps, even more planets, Morales said. In addition, they are examining from the other 300 red dwarf stars to look for planets, he added.
