SETI public: Ames Researchers Confirm New Technique, Extra-Solar Planet


The planet, orbiting star HD209458, was discovered by Dr. David Charbonneau
and colleagues at the High Altitude Observatory in Boulder, CO in September
and announced in early November. The data showed that the diameter of the
planet was about 1.3 times that of Jupiter, and that it had an orbital
period of 3.52 days.
