Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. HD 83443 is an orange dwarf star approximately 142 light-years away in the constellation of Vela. As of 2000, at least one extrasolar planet has been confirmed to be orbiting the star. The planet HD 83443 b was discovered in 2000 by the Geneva Extrasolar Planet Search Team led by Michel Mayor. It has a minimum mass comparable to Saturn's, and its orbit is one of the shortest known, 1/25th that of Earth's. It takes only three days to complete one revolution around the star. This hot Jupiter is likely to be slightly larger than Jupiter in radius.show more
