Astronomers Discover 'Widest' Solar System

VOA News
January 27, 2016

Astronomers have discovered the largest solar system found so
far.

A team of American, British and Australian astronomers says a
planet known as 2MASS J2126, once thought to be a "free-floating"
or "lonely" planet, is actually in orbit about 1 trillion
kilometers from its star.

That is about 7,000 times farther than the Earth is from the sun,
and 140 times larger than the orbit of dwarf planet Pluto.

"The planet is not quite as lonely as we first thought, but it's
certainly in a very long-distance relationship," said lead author
Niall Deacon of the University of Hertfordshire in England.

At that distance, the planet orbits its star about once every
900,000 years, according to the astronomers.

While it's highly doubtful the planet hosts life, if it did, the
residents would see their sun as just a "bright star" and "might
not even imagine they were connected to it at all," Deacon said.

First impression

2MASS J2126 was found eight years ago by U.S. researchers in an
infrared sky survey, which caused them to classify it as young
and likely of a relatively low mass.

Later, Canadian researchers discovered the planet was "a possible
member of a 45 million-year-old group of stars and brown dwarfs
known as the Tucana Horologium Association."

With this information, the astronomers were able to calculate
that the planet had a mass of between 12 and 15 times that of
Jupiter.

"This is the widest planet system found so far, and both the
members of it have been known for eight years," Deacon said. "But
nobody had made the link between the objects before."

While 2MASS J2126 is not a lonely planet, several have been found
in recent years. Most of them are gas giants like Jupiter that
are just not massive enough to have ignited into shiny stars.

The paper appears in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal
Astronomical Society.

IS Radio Expands Reach in Afghanistan

Zabihullah Ghazi
January 27, 2016

JALALABAD, AFGHANISTAN - The Islamic State group in Afghanistan
has added new programming to its radio broadcasts that the Afghan
government has failed to take off the air.

The IS-run FM station "Voice of the Caliphate," which broadcasts
from a remote mobile transmitter on the Afghanistan-Pakistan
border, this week added Dari broadcasts to its lineup.

Now it airs programs in Pashto and Dari, the two official
languages of Afghanistan.

"Voice of the Caliphate" was launched last year and has been
airing a message of terror in a region where IS fighters are
active.

The broadcasts reach Jalalabad, capital of Nangarhar province, as
well as nearby districts bordering Pakistan.

The station has attracted a large audience in Jalalabad. Local
residents say its broadcasts are different from others.

"I have been listening to this radio for the last three months.
It airs Quranic verses and sayings of the Holy Prophet," said
Ahmadullah, 14, who joins a daily gathering of locals who listen
to the IS radio.

The broadcasts, which run from 7 to 9 p.m. daily, also include
anti-government and anti-Taliban propaganda, invitations to join
IS, threats against government employees, interviews with IS
fighters, and religious chanting in Arabic, Pashto and Dari.

"I have seen a few people who ó I don't know if they were joking
or serious ó who said if the radio keeps broadcasting, they would
join IS," Abdul Rahman, a civil society activist in Jalalabad,
told VOA.

'They keep moving'

At first, Afghan officials said they would shut down the IS
broadcasts and claimed success. However, the provincial
government now admits it has failed to hunt down the IS
broadcasters.

"They keep moving from one area to another. They are not staying
in one place. That's the reason we have failed to take it off
air," Attaullah Khogyani, the Nangarhar governor's spokesperson,
told VOA.

That does not please residents who fear IS's spreading influence.

"The government should have stopped the radio, but it is
unfortunate the government has failed in doing its job," said
activist Rahman.

IS has vowed that NATO and Afghan forces will not able to shut
down "Voice of the Caliphate."

Nangarhar has recently seen an increasing presence of IS
fighters, who have launched multiple attacks on Afghan security
forces in several districts.

In an interview with VOA's Afghan service this week, U.S. Senator
John McCain, an Arizona Republican, said IS has become a threat
to Afghanistan.

"IS will be very hard to beat. They are growing not only in
Afghanistan, but in Libya, Egypt and numerous other countries,"
McCain said. "We don't have a strategy that I believe will stop
the growth of IS in Afghanistan."

VOA's Noor Zahid and Ibrahim Nasar contributed to this report
from Washington.

NASA Launches New Weather/Climate Satellite

VOA Science World Blog
22 January 2016

An international oceanographic collaboration has a new tool to
help it monitor the rise in global sea level after the successful
launch of a meteorological satellite.

A Space X Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Jason-3 spacecraft blasted
off from Vandenberg Air Force base in California recently.

The spacecraft will help continue efforts to measure changes in
global ocean height by satellite that began in 1992 with the
Topex/Poseidon mission.

The Jason 3 mission is a collaboration between NASA, the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the French space agency,
CNES and the European Organization for the Exploitation of
Meteorological Satellites.
