History has shown that if you want to find new land, ask a Sooner to find it.
Scientists at the University of Oklahoma found evidence that there are approximately 2,000 extragalactic planets for every one star beyond the Milky Way. Some appear as small as the moon and other as large as Jupiter. The study, published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, used information from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and a planet detection technique called microlensing.
Microlensing used the frequencies emitted by moving celestial objects in the distortion and magnification of light. Many of these planets are not around a star but occupying space on their own.
These Sooner scientists however will have quite a ride to stake out these areas. They are some 3.8 billion light years away, but that is what people said about the Land Rush of 1889.
In the meantime, we have to contemplate a much more occupied reality in space.
Well done University of Oklahoma.
