Hunting for planets in NGC 6397

Post by Lazarus on 24th February 2012, 3:55 am

An HST search for planets in the lower Main Sequence of the globular cluster NGC 6397

Searching for planetary transits around the low-mass stars, no planetary transits found. Sad

Globular clusters don't seem to have a lot of giant planets. Perhaps because the formation environment was unstable.
