Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A controversial "first" exoplanetary system discovered using astrometry and lies only 20 light years away, but not confirmed with dopplar spectrometry. Would be smallest known star to host a planet and is a flare star. Contain's a cold Jupiter six times Jupiter's mass a Mercury like distance. The "planet" and the star are about the same size and the planet contains 10% of the mass of the system. The system forms an astrometric binary (unbound) with a larger Gliese 752 binary system, which lies 434 AU away. The star will burn for 10 trillion years, then the planet will fall into it, fuelling it for another 100 billion years.
